Sharing the Dharma Day
November 6, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC+0
One Sunday a month, Sravasti Abbey opens our doors for Sharing the Dharma Day, an opportunity for newcomers and old friends to explore the Buddha’s teachings and share in community fellowship.
This Sunday’s topic is Cultivating Compassion, covering verses 10-22 of the Tibetan poem, “The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas.” Sharing the Dharma Day topics are drawn from the book, Don’t Believe Everything You Think, a commentary on the poem by Abbey founder and abbess Ven. Thubten Chodron.
People from all faiths and backgrounds can apply the principles explored on Sharing the Dharma Day to enhance their lives. Bring a vegetarian potluck dish (please no meat, eggs, garlic, onions, leeks or radishes) and come with an open mind. All are welcome!
