Daily Life Dharma – Taking Stock

by the lazy Buddhist Happy New Year! It’s 2022 and I’m probably not the only one who happily waved goodbye to 2021 and its challenges. Early on in the year, I came across a Facebook post in which H.E. Garchen Rinpoche talks of what Khenpo Munsel Rinpoche taught him while in prison. ‘When you find [...]

Country Living with Tanja

I cannot believe that I have been at Tara Rokpa for a year already.  The time has gone so fast.  It certainly has been a year filled with trials, tribulations, new experiences and great learning.  It has been wonderful meeting interesting people, making friends, learning different cooking methods, getting accustomed to a new landscape, and [...]

Spring Update by Pippa

A few weeks of spring rains have replenished the valley and brought welcome green growth.  The weather is however unpredictable and is not following the usual early summer patterns. Layers of clothing seem to go on and off according to the ever-changing temperatures. For me, a recent highlight was attending our recent Green Tara practice [...]

Daily Life Dharma – No harm

Back in the late 1900s, (I kid you not, it was 1997!) my now-husband and I spent just under a year travelling around America in a camper van. It was the most amazing adventure and something I have thought of often in the last few weeks as the Gabby Petito murder unfolds. At the same [...]

Winter Update from Pippa

In mid-June the cold creeps in as the sunsets. I have just come in from the cold where I braved a bowl of soup while watching the sky colours change and the waxing sickle moon and  Venus and Mars growing brighter as the darkness crept in.  The welcome wood-burning stove is now glowing, bringing needed [...]

Daily Life Drama by the lazy Buddhist

Goodness, I am showing my age. Way back in 2007, when Clive Holmes visited South Africa, I was fortunate enough to attend his Better Health through Meditation Retreat at the Randburg Centre. It was in the good old days, long before Drupon Rinpoche pointed out that taking notes was not the best way to benefit [...]

Seeing the Dharma path in life situations

On my first visit to India, after attending teachings by H.E Tai Situpa, I decided to go to McLeod Ganj where H.H. Dalai Lama was giving all-day transmissions at his monastery. Anyone who has visited this monastery will know that approaching and entering it is not straightforward for a first-timer. I arrived when the teachings [...]
