Fortunate Joy: The Blessing of Being

Buddhism speaks frequently of the “preciousness of human life.” The blessing of being alive, of being human, is to uncover and become reacquainted with our basic nature—sane, aware, empty and luminous. We are indeed fortunate to not only find the teachers who embody the Dharma and selflessly impart their understanding and realization, but provide each of us with the tools, space and experiences to accomplish this for ourselves. When we touch this awareness with appreciation and gratitude, we awaken to spontaneous joy and happiness.
