Dharma Talks / Why is Suffering Holy?

Sr Tuệ Nghiêm

During the retreat at Magnolia Grove Monastery​ (September 23, 2015), Sister Tue Nghiem teaches us why suffering is holy, even though it’s so uncomfortable. Coming back to our suffering helps us cultivate our compassion, our joy, and our happiness.

In addition to the retreats at Deer Park Monastery next month, the monastics are also giving talks in San Francisco and Los Angeles. ‪
