MAHA SADHANA: THE GREAT PRACTICE

I keep saying the same thing; this is amazing.

Having access to the spiritual underpinnings of the practice is such a privilege.

Before, it's like I was practicing with my eyes covered, and feeling around in the dark.

Dharma removes the blindfold and leads you by the hand; he offers this information to anyone who is ready to absorb it. No withholding.

Plus he has a great sense of humor.

The other night we did a ritual in a circle with the candle and the light.

Then prasad (blessed food) was passed out.

As everyone stared at it in their hand, Dharma said, in all seriousness,

"Remember Jonestown?"

I burst out laughing.

The two girls next to me said, "What?"

They are in their 20's.

They'd never heard of Jonestown.

I had to explain it to them.

I'm so lucky to be here.
