6 Time Management Tips from the Buddha

1 Dec

Lama Surya Das

Among all the substances we misuse and abuse, the greatest is time. Time is life; we squander it at our peril. Killing time deadens ourselves.

Almost everyone I encounter complains that they don’t have enough. But where did it all go? Why aren’t our labor-saving devices and faster means of travel and communication liberating us? Or at the very least, providing us with more leisure to accomplish the things that we want and need to do, or letting us simply slow down and enjoy what we’ve worked so hard for?

Does anyone have time today? I do! During the 40 years I’ve spent studying and teaching Buddhism, and in the process of writing my new book, “Buddha Standard Time: Awakening to the Infinite Possibilities of Now,” I’ve learned how to find, make, and keep time.

Actually, it’s not time we lack; it’s focus, awareness and a sense of…

An American Lama’s Thoughts on Prayer

1 Dec

Lama Surya Das

Happy holydays! May every day be a good one, just being alive as the sun dawns.

Every morning I wake and take a moment to appreciate the lovely view from my bedroom window. And every day, as I take in the stillness and beauty of my little pond and surrounding woods, I wonder: Who made all of this? Wordless gratitude fills my heart and mind, body and soul each day as I begin my morning ritual, and I sense the sacred Presence transcendent over all of us yet immanent in each and every one of us, by whatever name or image-ing.

Where’d it all come from, and where’s it heading? The unspeakable potency of this ancient, timeless mystery instantly makes me feel grateful, standing awe-struck right amidst the miracle and amazing grace of it all. Immediately I feel enveloped in what a Christian mystic once called the cloud of unknowing…

The Power of One

The Power of One

Lama Surya Das

One allegedly violent 19-year-old boy pretty much shut down our fine city of Boston last Friday. Not to mention the terrible damage he and another are believed to have wrought on innocent lives near the marathon finish line on Monday. Now four young people are dead and scores injured as result of the bombing suspects’ actions. Why? Will we ever really know? As authorities are working to get to the bottom of this, and prevent similar possible future crimes, let’s together strive to get to root causes and origins of our violent society and era, and genuinely do something about it.

As our city and surrounding suburban towns were in lockdown, forcing us to hide in our homes and stay off the streets, while the suspect(s) were intensely pursued, I was praying, meditating, counseling people, and holding the victims in my heart. This lockdown is something I have never experienced…

Boost Revenue with Better Visibility through CRMS

7 Aug

CRM is very important for a business to grow effectively as it helps in understanding the needs of the customers and thereby helping in providing them a good service.

Onsite CRM Software

The nature of the Internet and the many changes brought about by it and related technologies ultimately mean that your customers and your marketing team are spending a lot more time talking to each other. While this can be a good thing in the long run, it puts a serious burden on your staff. One of the things you need to consider is whether or not everybody your team is going to be on the same page when talking to their customers.

That’s where your customer relationship management system can really pay for itself and then some. A CRMS lets every person in your company see the same information about every customer every time. This insures that the entire team is working together instead of each one starting over with new and different data every single time.

But CRM doesn’t stop there. A great system is going to do so…
