For the Disabled and Chronically Ill

Postby sattva » Sun May 30, 2010 1:34 am

Does anyone know of a temple or monastery where a person who is disabled and/or has serious health problems could live and practice the Dharma but with consideration to their limitations?

Hi Sattva

Have you tried contacting individual centres and monasteries to see if they can accommodate?
kind regards

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
