On Monday, April 2nd, 2018 Myosen Sprott gave a special talk at the Center on the topic “Cultivating Gratitude”. Myosen shared her ideas and experience based in the teachings of Guo Gu and Master Sheng Yen. One main theme was that gratitude is THE attitude, the main foundational virtue underlying all of practice. Myosen also shared a clever idea that gratitude involves a “2G” network, meaning gratitude and generosity are partnered together. Myosen explained how genuine gratitude requires heartfelt acknowledgment of the gifts we receive, and some ways to cultivate gratitude in our daily lives.
