2015 DBA 5-day Meditation program testimony

E-mail Print

2015-05-25 8005 8x10i

Dear Dallas Buddhist Association,

After contemplating what I've learned at the meditation retreat, I now have the motivation to spread my wisdom to those who wish for it. The wisdom of loving kindness may not change another person's life, but it will definitely impact him or her in a positive manner. As a suggestion for next year, more English copies of the wisdom discussed in the lectures will help those who can only understand English. Additionally, as a consideration for future retreats, if there is a greater number of participants under the age of 35, the lectures might need to be condensed or greatly simplified. Although I did not have too many problems with the lectures, I understand that there might be others who can't understand Mandarin Chinese as well as Buddha's complexity of truth; therefore, I highly recommend taking into consideration the age of the participant as well as his or her own knowledge of Buddhism. Although I was able to eat the food provided for me throughout the 5 days, others around my age might not be able to. In regards to the younger participants, fruit juice, salads, tomatoes, or any other American vegetarian foods can be great additions for breakfast and lunch. Even with these minor concerns, I was still able to enjoy the meditation retreat, to practice calming and focusing my mind, and to gain a better understanding of myself.

Thank you for letting me attend the retreat.

Sincerely,
Victor Nguyen

This year’s five day meditation program was very beneficial to the participants in many ways.  In addition to having long periods of sitting and walking meditation, we received dharma teachings from Sister Christine, who has vast knowledge of the Buddhist sutras, as well as a very detailed and lively teaching style. The main topic of this year’s retreat dealt with Endurance. Learning to develop this quality, can help us diminish anger and deal skillfully with difficult situations. There were also Pureland teachings.  In addition to meditating, learning dharma from a knowledge teacher,  spending  time with dedicated dharma students, and enjoying good food and a smoothly run retreat,  we also had the opportunity to take refuge and precepts. The five days passed quickly, but the benefits we gained from this retreat will go with us into our daily lives deepening our practice of meditation and the Dharma.
