Practice Principles

The following are the ZCP practice principles, recited three times at the conclusion of sitting periods Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesday night.

Caught in a self-centered dream, only suffering.
Believing self-centered thoughts, exactly the dream.
Experiencing life without the self, the path of liberation.
Being just this moment, Compassion’s Way.

The following is the morning verse, recited three times at the end of sitting period Monday through Friday mornings.

Vast is the Heart-Mind of liberation
A boundless field of benefaction
Realizing this one true empty nature
Compassion and wisdom revealed
