Living Dharma Articles

These are essays contributed by lay members of West Covina Buddhist Temple. The word “Dharma” refers not only to the teachings of Buddhism but, especially in the case of this column, to the day-by-day experiences of our lives that teach us important lessons. That’s why we say the Dharma is “living.” All the Living Dharma articles seem to describe that kind of discovery or insight which results when something happens in our lives that causes us to reflect. And yet, while the experience described in each article is totally unique, somehow we can all still relate. There is a universal human element. This is what makes the Living Dharma so fascinating to read each month.
