Repelling all troubles
With the commotion and confusion that has arisen from the military invasion of the Ukraine the consequences of violence and war have become obvious. When we follow the middle way we neither turn away from problems nor merge into them. Here is a short practice text (dog-pa ཟློག་པ) that you can do to help stay calm and clear in the face of provocation. Using the power of the Buddha’s word to repel cruel intentions and outrageous lies we can maintain our openness to love and truth. May all beings whatever their nationality benefit from this!
It has also been translated into other languages.
You can listen here to James talking about the text on 3rd March 2022.
