Daily Wisdom / Ocean of Dharma

Saddles, Chairs and Green Grass

Book coverThere can be too much emphasis on the heroism of sitting practice and on the idea that there is nothing to do but meditate. There is a greater world than your little meditation world, your little meditation hall, and your little meditation cushion. There are other seats—there are saddles and chairs and green grass you can sit on. Everywhere you sit does not have to be a meditation cushion.

From “Expanding Your Practice” in The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. Volume Two: The Bodhisattva Path of Wisdom and Compassion by Chögyam Trungpa, page 57
