  • The Dragon Who Never Sleeps is a collection of gathas-poetic vows for daily living in verse form-that are similar to prayers. Reciting these gathas can help us to face life's difficulties with understanding and humor. They serve as gentle reminders to live in the present, accept ourselves, and offer joy to others.
