Mahaparibbana Sutta - Sangha Night SeriesOn Thu, 14 January, 2016 - 23:41
We will be kicking off a four-week series on the Mahaparinibbana Sutta next week - http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/dn/dn.16.1-6.vaji.html (alternate translation available via the link below the title)..
The series will look in turn at four areas of the sutta:
- 21st January - The Buddha’s advice that the sangha should meet in ”Regular and frequent assemblies”
- 28th January - The Buddha’s suggestion that Dharma practitioners should be ”Islands unto yourselves”
- 4th February - Ananda’s lamentation on the Buddha’s imminent passing - “He who is so kind”
- 11th February - The Buddha’s final words - “With mindfulness, strive on”
The series will culminate in the Parinirvana Day festival, on Sunday, 14th February from 10am-4pm.
Sangha Night is for those interested in taking their interest in Buddhism a bit deeper. Normally you would have been along to Newcomers Night for a period or completed a Part 1/2 Course. Message us on Facebook or ask any Order Member in person if you would like to know more.
