In this Day of Mindfulness we allow the 'ordinary' experiences of our breath and body; sensations and mental activities to reveal 'nirvana,' the 'unconditioned,' the 'Silence that is called Great Joy.' We will cultivate mindfulness, concentration and insight through the practices of breath awareness, sitting and walking meditations, mindful eating and we will maintain noble silence throughout the Day.***
[Noble Silence means: we refrain from all talking and "chit-chat"
except during Dharma Sharing.
Thus we support our Sangha Friends in their practice. And the 'outer silence' allows us to look more deeply into our own life. We allow the calmness and silence to penetrate our flesh and bones.]
