Zen Meditation

Dharma Walk & Contemplation

The Dharma Meditation is a complimentary class followed by the Qi Gong/Tai Chi class. It is practiced in two parts. The first 30 minutes consists of a normal-paced meditative walking to prepare the body for 30 minutes of seated contemplation in silence and darkness.

The 10 Laws of Dharma

The ancient sage Manu prescribed 10 essential rules for observance of dharma:

  1. Patience (dhriti) – Staying secure in your own inner peace.
  2. Forgiveness (kshama) – Letting go of things that don’t necessarily serve you.
  3. Piety or self-control (dama) – Knowing that the best things come to those that wait.
  4. Honesty (asteya) – This is really more about non-stealing; don’t take that which does not belong to you.
  5. Sanctity (shauch) – Cleanliness in mind, body, and soul.
  6. Control of senses (indraiya-nigrah) – Meditation and life force control.
  7. Reason (dhi) – Guiding your life with calm reason leads to great success.
  8. Knowledge or learning (vidya) – Gaining skills that significantly add to your ability to offer value is a huge step towards well-rounded success.
  9. Truthfulness (satya) -Realizing that truthfulness brings about the highest outcome for you and others.
  10. Absence of anger (krodha) – Anger poisons our ability to lead our lives in a positive and powerful way.

These are guidelines that will help you find the right track, and turn your life into something truly fulfilling.
