Just like that, we’re off to a new academic year at DRBU! During Orientation last week, keynote speaker Dharma Master Heng Chih invited participants to ponder the following verse by the Venerable Master.
By putting afflictions and doubts to rest,
By watching ourselves more and others less,
By admitting our faults without making excuses,
In that calm clarity, wisdom emerges.
— Venerable Master Hsuan Hua
Great advice for focusing the mind and heart at the start of a new endeavor, scholastic or otherwise. Wouldn’t you agree?
