My Son

Last night was the first time I have ever brought my son to a formal meditation with a group I’ve been sitting with on and off for more than a decade. He had mentioned that he wanted to go and, after I checked with the teacher, we decided we’d go. Did anything spectacular happen? No, but he sat through the whole half hour meditating and forty five minute Dhamma talk and discussion without complaint. In all honestly, I was proud of his hard work and interest.

Wedgie knows of this will become a regular thing but a seed had been planted that may flourish in this life or the next. May my children grow in the Dhamma and practice it until they achieve unshakable peace and protection from harm.
