Lunar New Year 2018 "Parallel Verses"

Are you ready for Lunar New Year? It's on February 16th! Here are the parallel verses (or couplet) that our beloved community has created for this year's collective practice. "Peace is the Breathing, Joy is the Walking."  Print them out on colorful paper (red paper is traditional in Vietnamese culture) and post them side by side in places around the house (a light switch, mirror, windows) as a gentle reminder for your aspiration this year.

The couplet can be combined with our breathing as a gatha:

Breathing in, Peace in the Breathing
Breathing out, Joy is the Walking
Peace is the breathing, joy is the walking.jpg
