Day of a Buddhist Practitioner, Part 3

Dharma at the End of the Day

Being tired at the end of the day, it’s easy to gear back, switch off and go numb as a reaction to the stresses of the day. By understanding a Dharmic approach to stress, and an approach to the infinite aspects of mind, we can dissolve the day’s worries and come to rest in mind’s basic nature at the close of the day.

Day of a Buddhist Practitioner, Part 2: Dharma Throughout the Day

Series description: Being a dharma practitioner means developing mindfulness and insight not just when we’re on the cushion, but in our everyday lives. This series, loosely based on Bokar Rinpoche’s book “The Day of a Buddhist Practitioner” offers strategies for extending our mindfulness into everyday experiences.

Episode description: In the sometimes frenzied world of daily responsibility and demands, we can lose sight of who we are and act unkindly toward ourselves and others. By consciously remembering our goal of benefitting beings and nurturing our Buddha Nature over and over again, we can find fulfillment while also managing our emotions and experiences through mindfulness, love and compassion.
