Putting the Dharma into Practice in Daily Life

From the Cushion to the Dishes!

All three aspects of practice–learning the Dharma, meditation, and daily application-are part of an integration process that takes time.

Putting things into practice in daily life consists in training in the application of the Dharma based on the understanding gained from learning and meditation. This training consists in acting in a beneficial way, avoiding harmful actions, and developing a clear mind, thus allowing us to gather favorable conditions. It supports our progress on the path to liberation from suffering by offering us the possibility of evaluating our understanding and integration ourselves day by day.

Participating in the center’s activity offers many opportunities to cultivate the six fundamental qualities of generosity, conduct, patience, perseverance, mental stability and discernment. Training in the practice of these six qualities allows us to gradually reveal our own qualities, so that one day we will be able to truly accomplish the two benefits: our own and that of others.

“Dhagpo’s basic philosophy is to learn the Dharma, practice meditation, and train in helping others.”

Lama Jigme Rinpoche
