Mindfulness is the heart of the Buddha’s teachings. Practicing the Five Mindfulness Trainings is practicing mindfulness in each moment of our daily life, not just during sitting meditation. The practice of the Trainings ensures a safe and happy present and a safe and happy future.
According to Thich Nhat Hanh, the practice of Buddhist meditation is impossible without the practice of the Five Mindfulness Trainings. He urges everyone who has confidence in the practice of mindfulness meditation to receive, study and practice the Trainings, with the support of a local Sangha.
On October 16, 2022, we will offer a HYBRID ceremony to receive the Five Mindfulness Trainings. Dharma Teacher, Terry Cortes-Vega, will lead a Transmission Ceremony for those who wish to receive the Five Mindfulness Trainings, at the Dallas Meditation Center.
