Our daily life is our practice

“So keep it short. And keep your aspiration—that our whole day will be our dharma practice, that it’s not just sitting on your cushion. Your cushion, yes, is to get your mind settled, get the awareness clear, set up good motivation, but then we have to use our daily life, everyone we encounter, everything we do, to develop our loving awareness, to develop our charity and generosity, to develop our patience, to develop our kindness, and try to be aware, to be present as much as we can. Then our practice is our daily life. Our daily life is our practice. Then you can’t say, I have no time because as long as we’re conscious, that’s our time for practice.”

– Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
