About the Dorje Kasung:
The Dorje Kasung is modelled on the ancient tradition of dharma protectors. Its members are trained in protecting the space in which practitioners are able to hear and practice the teachings. The protection extends to the teacher who presents the teachings, the teachings themselves, and the community who practice the teachings.
The term Dorje Kasung itself means indestructible (Dorje) command (Ka) protector (sung). Indestructible refers to the indestructibility of space – complete openness – that cannot be destroyed or defeated. Ka or command refers to the teaching of the lineage which present the truth of things as they are and the possibility of establishing enlightened society.
The motto of the Dorje Kasung is "Victory over War". War represents the struggle with the three poisons identified by the Buddha: passion, aggression and ignorance. Victory is being willing to face these poisons and meet them head on with insight and loving kindness.
This program is appropriate to anyone interested in exploring a living warrior tradition and meditation in action.
