50 Years, 50 Voices: Amarapushpa and Chandrasiddhi

Money, Sex, God, Death and this week America!

By shraddhavani on Thu, 2 Nov, 2017 - 15:38

Join us this Sunday, 9:30AM-Noon at the historic PPMTV building on Marcy St. as we wrap up our five-part series of conversations about being Buddhist in the world today.  This week we look at our turbulent national context – America, with all its contradictions and challenges.  Following a period of mediation, Dh. Viriyalila will once again frame the conversation and pose some questions for us to explore.  

This is our regular community gathering and all are welcome.  Offered by donation...
