Sunday Dharma Talk

The Skill of Gratitude

October 6, 2019

The teachings of the Buddha ask that we practice certain skills.  One of the essential skills that, as dharma students, we learn to develop is the skill of gratitude.  When we're able to cultivate gratitude, meditation practice thrives and we move forward, toward a greater happiness in our lives.  In this talk, given at the Sunday Night Meditation class, Peter Doobinin explains how we cultivate this important skill.  

"Monks, these two people are hard to find in the world. Which two? The one who is first to do a kindness, and the one who is grateful for a kindness done and feels obligated to repay it. These two people are hard to find in the world."
(AN 2.119)
