Ango is a wonderful time to work toward making our lives more unified with practice. In addition to practicing moment-to-moment awareness in your daily activities, what other ways can you bring yourself into contact with the dharma during the day? Let this question guide you as you formulate your commitments for the ango. Ideally, your ango will include deliberate periods of practice in which you set aside time for one or two of the Eight Gates, as well as an ongoing effort to bring elements of the Eight Gates into the midst of your regular routines.
Please reflect on the material below and your other life priorities as you plan your commitments for this Ango. Remember, the purpose of Ango is to renew and deepen our commitment to practice and training as integral parts of our daily life.
