Practice for the People | January 7, 2015

How fantastic if we, as a Buddhist community, had a tradition of supporting sangha to study and practice. Of course there are many Buddhist retreat centers in the West and many are as generous as they can be to those who cannot afford to pay full fare. But more ubiquitous and affordable retreats offered to more people would be a sign of good times. Getting to that point would require more people to cultivate a habit of giving joyfully and generously to sustain the practice of others.
