'To place the heart upon' is the literal translation of the term sraddha, more often translated just as faith. It plays a key role in the Buddhist life and suggests an emotional response to what we value, indicating that the Dharma life is not just about learning techniques or changing our perception of the world but a whole-hearted engagement with the Three Jewels. We will explore what faith really is along with the related emotions of devotion, reverence and gratitude; we will hear some stories about faith from the Buddhist tradition; and we will engage in devotional practices that help to strengthen the faculty of faith within us.
