At our best we’re grateful for all that we’ve been given, and delight in giving to others. In those moments we taste the freedom of the Awakened Mind. So why is it so hard to do?!
On this day retreat we will invoke Ratnasambhava, the jewel-born Buddha of beauty, abundance and perfect generosity. One hand holds the jewel of Awakening, and the other is outstretched in a gesture of giving – he represents both our highest ideals and the most fundamental human virtue and shows us a path between them.
