We aspire, as Buddhists to apply the teachings to our daily lives. This course will highlight some elements to bring our Buddhist practice into our homes and everyday activities. This may include creating a physical presence with an at-home altar. It may include simple daily rituals that will focus our attention on our Buddhist teachings. And maybe, most importantly, develop a Buddhist mindful awareness as we experience our present moment and carry-on our everyday activities.
