Discernment: A Postulant’s Journey to Success

Thomas Koshin Bruner

Thomas Koshin Bruner

We are in the process of discerning matters great and small throughout our lives. As Buddhists, how do we approach the “big” decisions about the shape and form our lives will take? Is there a difference between “deciding” and “discerning”? And what constitutes “success”? Thomas Bruner shares his process of discerning whether to ordain as a monk while a postulant at Dharma Rain last year.

This talk was given Sunday, June 12.
