Like a Lion Licking Your Face

Dharma Teaching by Acharya Noel McLellan originally published on broken leaf The path of the Lion is connected with discipline and joy. Do the words “discipline and joy” go together for you? Here, discipline is not about rules and their enforcement. The outer level of form, rules, protocols, manners, and rituals is important to attend to carefully. But those forms should be a support and reflection of a more inner feeling, the culture we wish to develop. Whether ... continue
