Dharma Topic: The Buddhist VIew
Shakyamuni Buddha placed the Right View first in the Eightfold Noble Path. Our view of our self and the world is colored by the demands of our ego which have become ingrained habits. We are rarely aware of them. The Buddhist View gives us a proper perspective on the nature of our mind and its relation to the world.

- Bodhicitta Prayer
- Dedication of Merit
- "At this very moment for the peoples and nations of the earth..." prayer
