To mark Memorial Day this year, we’ll be having s special sangha gathering this Sunday to meditate together, and then reflect on the Buddha’s message of non-violence as the only truly viable way to peace. In the Commentaries of the Anguttara Nikaya and the Samyutta Nikaya we hear tale of the Buddha intervening in a dispute between rival clans and helping prevent a full-scale war. You can listen to a talk about this by Sangharakshita here:

Listen to ‘The Buddha, World Peace and Nuclear War’ 

Come and join us from 10am-12pm this Sunday morning. Meet with friends old and new and reflect on the great possibilities of peace in our time…

We live indeed so happily,
Unhating amidst haters;
Among those who are hateful,
We dwell free from hate.
 

The Buddha (Dhammapada, Verse 197-199
