  James Baraz
The fact that we're given a human birth is exceedingly rare in itself. But to hear the Dharma, and be motivated as well as have the opportunity to practice is extraordinary good karma. Reflecting on this brings gratitude and provides a strong incentive to practice for the benefit of all beings.

2014-07-24 Seeing Everyone as Your Benefactor 48:48
  James Baraz

2014-06-19 "Finding What Your Looking For" 51:58
  James Baraz
Our preconceptions and assumptions have a significant effect on how we perceive reality--what gets taken in and what gets filtered out. A rich area of practice is being aware of this so that we truly see clearly to the best of our ability. As we bring more awareness to our filters, we can also see others' Buddha nature inside them, and help it come out, even if they can't see it themselves.

2014-06-12 The practice of generosity and the difference between Dana and Caga 48:06
  Kate Janke
