In his signature honest and humorous style, Kevin Griffin enriches this powerful and practical talk with numerous examples and approaches to making the dharma real in our everyday lives.

He shares that living the dharma is not about doing activities that are Buddhist, but instead making every activity we engage with Buddhist in our own way.

Kevin also shares his framework for living out the dharma:

  1. Following the precepts
  2. Being mindful and present
  3. Viewing life through the lens of the dharma

He reminds us that as humans we will always fall short in some ways, so he shares many ways we can apply compassion and forgiveness to ourselves.
