Our practice, the effort we put forth to meditate and develop the path, is a profound expression of our goodness. As dharma students, we learn to take joy in our practice, our effort to train the mind and heart. The path is joyful. Life is joyful. As we practice the dharma, we come to know this. The talk was given in 2013 at the Sunday Night Meditation class.
"Over there are the roots of trees; over there, empty dwellings. Practice jhana, monks. Don't be heedless. Don't later fall into regret. This is our message to you."
