Wonderful, indeed, it is to subdue the mind,
  so difficult to subdue, 
ever swift,
  and seizing whatever it desires.  
A tamed mind brings happiness.

Please see the News link page for upcoming retreat April 11-13, 2014, given by Venerable Bhikkhuni Kusuma. This is a glorious opportunity to meet and study with a very accomplished Nun.

"Wherever the Buddha's teachings have flourished,

              either in cities or countrysides,

     People would gain inconceivable benefits.

The land and people would be enveloped in peace,

     The sun and moon will shine clear and bright.

          Wind and rain would appear accordingly,

                  and there will be no disasters.

                  Nations would be prosperous

and there would be no use for soldiers or weapons.   

People would abide by morality and accord with laws.

            They would be courteous and humble,

and everyone would be content without injustices.

        There would be no thefts or violence.

        The strong would not dominate the weak       

 and everyone would get their fair share."
