What is the Dhamma, and how we can make use of it to find peace of mind?
Getting too involved in the stream of the world can lead to suffering and dissatisfaction, but we have the option to turn toward the Dhamma and find some cool shade to rest in and regain our energy. If we can see with discernment, we will want to build a foundation of goodness to stand on. During this day of meditation, we can support each other in our struggle to find serenity, regardless of what is happening in the world around us.
