Just like that, we’re off to a new academic year at DRBU! During Orientation last week, keynote speaker Dharma Master Heng Chih invited participants to ponder the following verse by the Venerable Master.

— 宣化上人

By putting afflictions and doubts to rest,
By watching ourselves more and others less,
By admitting our faults without making excuses,
In that calm clarity, wisdom emerges.

— Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

Great advice for focusing the mind and heart at the start of a new endeavor, scholastic or otherwise. Wouldn’t you agree?
