Everyday Dharma

More from Tenzin Palmo:

We have to transform those ordinary actions of our day into dharma practice because otherwise nothing is going to move. And it’s very important to realize that every person that you meet, everything that you do, with the right attitude and a little awareness and skillful means — we can transform everything — all our joys and sorrows. Where else is the dharma? Obviously the dharma is every breath we take, every thought we think, every word we speak, if we do it with awareness and an open, caring heart.

Yeah, a teacher of mine once commented that driving and farting are "practice" too but we neglect them.
