Retreat Dharma Talks at New York Insight Meditation Center

Sowing Good Seed

Buddha said the future is not predestined. We can make a difference in how the future of our planet unfolds. We are creating seeds for the future, today. So, he promoted a way of seeing the world as interconnected -- conditional. The bodhisattva is not merely one who hears the cries of the world, but who also responds with skillfulness. The practice of such a one, today, necessarily fosters deeper spiritual joy and clarity coupled with commitment to environmental sustainability and social justice. This non-residential retreat will equip attendees through meditation, inspiration and solid Dharma study on the seven enlightenment factors to identify and commit to specific beneficial actions and practices as part of their life’s work and joy in the well being of self and others.
