A Precious Poem of US poet Mary Oliver (1935 – 2019) on Trees

https://www.brainpickings.org/?s=Mary+Oliver

We spy from time to time a trees standing in its solitary elegance alone in the field.

We, too, can abide too in the dignity of aloneness – an authentic expression of our being. The solitariness develops much strength in the depth of our being.

Brainpickings is one of my Top Ten favourite Websites. Free to join. Founder of the website is Maria Popova (born 1985) from Bulgaria, who writes insightful, inspiring comments and links to poets, authors and literary figures, past and present. She lives in New York. The website explores a range of human issues through our word artists.

Yes, you see a lot of reading above. This is a time of Stay-at-Home.

Make wise use of this time.

You can pass over this PDF to anyone, if you wish.

Bodh Gaya and Sarnath Update, photo links and information for January, 2017 retreats

Bodh Gaya and Sarnath 2016 update, photo links

and information for January, 2017 retreats

We held our 42nd annual Dharma retreat in India on mindfulness, insight meditation (vipassana) and liberation in India in late February. 2016.

Indian newspapers had been reporting a decline of around 5% tourists per year (outside Goa) for several years in India. For example, British tourists and travel agents were disgruntled with the £98.00 visa charge (the British government charge even more for Indian citizens to secure a tourist visa for the UK), plus sending in the passport, photo and visa forms to the Indian High Commission. One small error or oversight in the form could result in delays in securing the visa. Continue reading
