NOTE VENUE & TIME CHANGE:
Group Meditation Practice
"Generosity & Tonglen"
This weekly session explores different as
practice from those covered in the main Tuesday evening meetings
As usual, we will practice in the Dzogchen tradition of Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche and Lama Surya Das.
This session is a wonderful opportunity for chanting and meditation in a group setting, and to connect with this timeless contemplative tradition in a deeper way through the study of texts from this lineage of teachers.
Part of the time will be spent in guided meditation exploring the Buddha Yoga principle. During the remainder, there will be teaching and interactive study with Lama Surya Das's book on the Ten Transcendental Virtues: "Buddha is as Buddha Does".
It is entirely appropriate for those new to meditation, as well as those more experienced
; as well as for those who love to chant - or even those who prefer not.
This activity is offered free of charge, and is open to all.
If you have a copy of Buddha Is As Buddha Does, please bring it with you. This week we will be focusing on Chapter One - The Transcendental Gift of Generosity, with particular emphasis on the practice of Tonglen at the end of the chapter.
