Shareable Post - Sending and Taking in Times of Despair
 
[Dear Patrons: This post is public, so feel free to share it with other students who may benefit from the recording.]

With devastating natural disasters and horrific acts of violence capturing our attention here in the United States and around the world, it's important to focus on creating a positive and lasting impact in our communities.

Lama Tsony, the resident dharma teacher in Bodhi Path Natural Bridge, VA, recently gave a talk on the Lojong practice of Sending and Taking as a way to help those affected even as events seem as grim as they are.

Lama Tsony was asked: What would you do in a situation like Hurricane Maria, the earthquakes in Mexico, the fires in California, or the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas? His answer lies within this fundamental practice of Sending and Taking and really trying to connect it to your own meditation.
