Merit Makers & Side Notes
Thanks go out this week to Naga Dhoopati, Peter Cranford and Meredith Bass. All three were early for an event and asked if they could help. Yes! Working together they dusted all the Dharma books in the library and Bookstore in a flash. Teamwork makes everything more fun and go much faster. Thanks guys for asking and your willingness to step up. You are appreciated!
Since Geshe-la talked about impermanence and clearing our conscious yesterday, it lingers. Here's a nice reminder mash-up that is simple and to the point.
"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go."
