Ocean of Dharma

Relaxing Wherever We Are

You don’t have to live in a palace all the time. Wherever you are, it is a palace. During a program at Rocky Mountain Dharma Center, I and my students were living in tents, and there wasn’t any running water. Of course not! We were camping out. We were able to enjoy ourselves anyway. We would wake up and wash in a basin, and we were there. We are not talking about buying Buckingham Palace so that we can relax. We can relax wherever we are.
