12/11/2016 Sunday by Norma

Avoid looking back and rehashing yesterday’s scenario. It’s over. An electrifying opportunity presents itself and you must say yes.

Best Case Scenario

Best Case Scenario

The following is an excerpt from a teaching by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo called “Western Chod”

Understand Dharma, drink its pure nectar

May I traverse the ocean of worldly existence in this […]
