Practice Priciples

Caught in a self-centered dream, only suffering.

Believing self-centered thoughts, exactly the dream.

Experiencing life as it is, the path of liberation.

Being just this moment, Compassion's Way.

(These are recited three times at the conclusion of sitting periods on Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesday night.)
