The Sutra of Zhuan Falun is like an eloquent drum, bringing the hearts of Buddha’s children back to participate in the Dharma assembly with the five great disciples of the Blessed One at the Deer Park in Ba La Nai. With the great Tri eyes, the great Dung spirit, and the great Hung voice of the Tu Father, he instilled in the Buddha’s disciples faith in the true Dharma, lighting the fire of Bi, Tri, and Dung to be brave on the path of cultivation. The Master’s voice resounded warmly: “There are two extremes that cultivators should avoid: one is pleasure, infatuation with sensual pleasures. The second is asceticism, forcing the body to practice the body, these two paths lead to consequences, destroying body and mind. The way the Blessed One discovered is the Middle Way.” The pace of modern life is fast and urgent, and sometimes ordinary disciples have let their bodies and minds fall into the two extremes above.

The sutras tonight have really brought the mind of the Buddha’s son back to the magical present moment, adding more peaceful energy to life.
