Have you had niggly questions that you wished you could ask or talk about? Why and what are all the statues and pictures on the wall at the Centre? What or who is Buddha? What did he teach that can be so relevant today? What are all the terminologies bandied around – Samsara, Nirvana, Bodhisattva, Water Bowls, Turning Wheels, Refuge,Theravada, Mahayana and so on.
Come along and we can have informal discussions on All Things Buddhist over a cuppa and a biscuit (or two).
More Introductory Courses Coming Up: We have Introduction to Buddhist Meditation on 31 Oct, 7 and 14 Nov and Explanation of Prayers and Rituals on 5 Dec. Senior student Owen Cole will lead these classes which start at 7.30pm and are by donation.
“Whether you win happiness or misery with human life so fragile and rare, and whether you gain confusion or peace lies entirely in your own hands. If you don’t practice the essence – abandoning evil and cultivating goodness what benefit is there even in living! on a remote mountain peak?”- The Seventh Dalai Lama!
