Audio dharma by Lama Surya Das: It's Not Time We Lack, But Focus

Audio dharma by Lama Surya Das: It's Not Time We Lack, But Focus

By Editor | Jul 18 2011

We’re all given the same twenty-four hours a day. We can spend our time feeling hurried and harried, overwhelmed by chores and demands, distracted and burned out . . . or we can awaken to Buddha Standard Time, the realm of timelessness where every choice, every action, and every breath can be one of renewal and infinite possibilities. 

~ Lama Surya Das

See our Talks page for IMCW guest teacher Lama Surya Das' July 13 dharma talk. Surya Das led meditation and a dharma talk at Wednesday's Bethesda class, speaking about his recent book, Buddha Standard Time: Awakening to the Infinite Possibilities of Now

The topic for the evening was “Living in Buddha Standard Time: It’s Not Time We Lack, But Focus”.
