No meeting on Tuesday, August 17

There will be no Real Dharma group meditation and inquiry meeting on Tuesday, August 17, as Hal Blacker will be attending Anam Thubten’s retreat at Mt. Madonna. Meetings will resume as usual on Tuesday, August 24. We hope to see you then!

No self, no other

When there is self, one believes there is other,
From these images of self and other come attachment and aversion,
As a result of getting wrapped up in these,
All possible faults arise.

—Dharmakirti (ca. 7th century) (trans. Ari Goldberg, from Contemplating Reality, by Andy Carr)
