Padma Samye Ling







Homage to the supreme medicine of the Dharma which heals all wounds without any side effects!


How can we avoid the detour of feeling bad about our practice or seeing it as a burden?


How can we walk a path of peace peacefully instead of seeing it as one more thing to check off our list?


How can we allow ourselves to mingle with the Dharma so courageously, tenderly, kindly, and clearly that challenges become medicine, negativities become avenues for growth, and the richness of life can be enjoyed and celebrated rather than be dampened by a heaviness that holds on too tightly?


In other words, how can we use compassion wisely so that our inherent dignity shines more brightly for the benefit of all beings, and rather than having to make ourselves “good,” we simply allow our nature to be as it is: naturally good?
