The Buddhist tradition likens the work we need to do to uncover the pure, lustrous being that we actually are to polishing a dirty plate, bowl or mirror.
Through our own effort and the example, support and inspiration of others we can gradually remove the obscurations that get in the way of our pure, enlightened nature.
Meditation is an extremely important component of this polishing; it helps us to stop, see and make better choices ….
I hope you can join us for meditation this week and for dinner at Barzura’s on Friday evening (see details about the latter below)
Thursday 7 – 8.30 pm
Sunday 8 – 8.50 am
And you’re invited to dinner this week at Barzura on Friday evening at 7 pm - $35 – just RSVP to me so that I can advise them of numbers. The owner Rodney is organising a vegetarian menu for us
Finally please put June 19 – 21 into your diary if you can come along on our first retreat for the year. Everyone is very warmly invited to share a peaceful and mindful weekend at Vijayaloka; our Buddhist Community’s retreat centre on the banks of the Georges River in Minto Heights.
You can book now by following this link and using the booking button for the retreat on those dates – it’s called ‘Sangha Retreat’
