Welcome to the Bodhi Tree Leaf! This site is for students of the Buddhadharma to learn to cultivate loving kindness, compassion, and primordial wisdom. It is also here to provide resources and guidance for Buddhist practioners.
Last Sunday I returned from a week in Alaska, where I had a wonderful time leading a retreat sponsored by the members of the Floating Leaf Sangha and other Dharma practicioners in Homer and Anchorage. They were absolutely wonderful hosts, opening their homes and their hearts to me as well as introducing me to the beauties of the landscape and the wildlife. Every time I go to Alaska, I feel very deeply as if I am arriving back in my homeland again.
On last Wednesday night, eight of us met at Greenlake to practice Chod. It was the perfect setting for this wonderful practice. Our next Chod practice will be number 106 and is due to be a beach somewhere. I made decision that for all of the future 106 times of Chod practice that it will be near water like on edge of lake, on beach or rivers and mountains. As I mentioned, it is Chumig Gyatsa. I will post the details as soon as they have been worked out.
May all beings be born with love and compassion.
May all beings abide with love and compassion.
May all beings act with love and compassion.
May all beings die with love and compassion.
- Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche
