Due to the inclement weather, we will not hold meditation and book group today, Feb. 2. Please stay warm and safe!
- GROUP MEDITATION: Every Tuesday, 5:30 – 6:30 pm (discussion following until 7 pm)
Two 20-minute meditations with basic instructions. Fine for both beginners and experienced. Main focus: developing mindfulness of body, feelings and thoughts; learning to observe inner and outer conditions without judgment; cultivating patience and compassion. Followed by a Dharma talk and discussion, with tea. OK to arrive late or leave early. Suggested donation of $5, but no one turned away for lack of funds. Location: 20 Mesa Road
- BODHIMIND BOOK GROUP: Every other Tuesday (See our calendar for dates). The group is currently reading the book The Diamond That Cuts Through Illusion by Thich Nhat Hanh. This book contains Thich Nhat Hanh’s commentary on the Diamond Sutra. We begin at 7:10 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no need to have the book or attend every session (although it is helpful to do so). Since each discussion is open and free flowing, those attending on a regular or sporadic basis are welcome to take an active or nonactive role in the discussion Free. Location: 20 Mesa Road
BodhiMind Special Events:
SLIDE SHOW: INDIA TRIP TO TASHI LHUNPO INAUGURATION
Many of you have been long-time supporters of Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan, our founding teacher and acting abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery at the Bylekuppe Tibetan Settlement in southern India. With the help of your donations, Rinpoche was able to complete the monastery’s assembly hall, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama presided over the inauguration this past December. The Dalai Lama then gave almost two weeks of teachings on the Lamrim (Stages on the Path) as well as two initiations. Over 30,000 people from around the world attended these amazing events, including David Gardiner and three other BodhiMind Center members.
David, Elaine Horton, Dave Resch, and Barbara Resch will present a slide show after the Tuesday, Feb. 9, meditation to share their experiences at the ceremonies and in the settlement. Light refreshments will be served (and if you’d like to bring more refreshments, we will gratefully accept them). We hope you will join us to see the results of your contributions!
