The greatest gift is the
gift of the teachings
Sylvia Boorstein's Dharma Talks
Sylvia Boorstein
My greatest joy is giving the gift of love and hope through the dharma, knowing it is possible for humans to transform their hearts. These dharma gifts include paying attention, practicing clarity and kindness and addressing the suffering of the world--which, of course, includes ourselves.

Using the path of practice (the Fourth Noble Truth), we can learn to pay attention moment to moment, developing insight and concentration. Each moment of mindfulness is another moment of freedom from suffering, and in that freedom, indeed, peace is possible.

Vipassana means seeing things clearly. When we are overwhelmed, our view can become inhibited. Like a miracle, seeing from a different view allows us to see and do in a different way. All we need is one moment of clarity to feel freedom, and all else passes. Meditation is one revelation after another, leading one to see with more kindness and compassion for the benefit of all beings.
