Insightful Praise Performance 17G006C
Our class (17G006C) has been practicing weekly for the past one month. Though we had a very short time to learn and to practice our chosen insightful praise “ Take Refuge ( 皈依頌)” , I enjoyed every practice session. I can feel the joy and inner peace growing inside me whenever I sing this insightful praise.
This afternoon was the insightful praise performance day that I looked forward to. Fellow dharma classmates and class monitors gathered an hour earlier to rehearsal and fine tune our singing. Despite audio technical difficulties, we sang with joy; showcasing our newly acquired talent.
During the opening speech by Venerable Ben Si, he explained the meaning of singing insightful praise and its merits. I could then resonate with my experience of the little 'joy' growing inside me during our practice sessions or when I practice on my own. Never had I felt this way and I finally understand its power.
Looking back, I am really thankful to our late Venerable master Ri Chang Shi Fu, Zhen Ru Lao Shi and Sanga Community for the monastery and Dharma community where I have the opportunity to learn, practice, realize and share.
