  • Love and being drawn to the Dharma
  • Living in a commmunity
  • Sanctify the mundane: reverence, caring and respectful mind
  • When the bell rings, go to the hall—mindfulness
  • Rock tumbler—smooth out the edges
  • Cut all family ties—from attachment and dependence to deep love
  • Everyday life—take where we are and what we’re doing as the practice
