The Rains Retreat and Ordination
We've been having a very full two months here at Deer Park, with the Great Precepts Transmission Ceremony and the opening of the Rains Retreat. Enjoy the articles below by Brother Minh An, Kenley Neufeld, and others.

Note that we are open for guests on Sundays; please register here to join us.
With peace and love,

In Wednesday evening, Thay Phap Luu will continue our teaching on the 22nd tenet–The Buddha has many bodies: the body of a living being, the Dharmabody, the body outside of the body, the Sanghabody, the continuation body, the Dharma-realm body, and the true nature of the Dharma-realm body. Since human beings can become Buddha they also have all these bodies.
