What the Children Say: Everybody Has Basic Goodness

For the past two years, Dorje Denma Ling has offered a very special winter holiday family gathering, which begins December 26th and culminating in a New Year’s Eve banquet and dance party. Each day begins and ends together with chants and meditation, with children from age 3 to 15 learning how to ring the gong, drum the drum, and offer incense for a daily lhasang. After morning chants, as the adults go off to their respective days of intensive shamatha and vajrayana practice (which fulfills group practice requirements), the children go to their own program activities, which are different each day. View the video below!

Highlights of this year’s retreat included a beautiful “basic goodness” book that was handmade by the kids; a profound and lively discussion about Shambhala household practice; a traditional Maritime “kitchen party”; and a number of snowball sneak attacks, although the snow levels did not meet the kids’ high expectations from last year.

This film was recorded and produced by Anna Weinstein.

  3. Anna, thank you for putting this video together. It would be helpful, for some of us grandparents who may be experiencing hearing difficulties, if all the audio had captions.

    And thanks to DDL for giving us the opportunity to come together at family camps.
