The implications for ideas of...

Our next Sunday Sangha evening will take place on the 20th March,  5:30 - 9:00 at the GBC.

Maitrinaga and team will be giving a multimedia exploration of the Madhupindka Sutta - the Honeyball Sutta. We will evoke and imagine the Buddha when he gave this discourse on conflict: the culprit in this case is a habit called Papanca.

Soup and gulab will be provided but please bring some vegetarian food to accompany and share.

The third talk is on the importance of sangha in the sutras and its relevance...

By mokshini on Mon, 11 Jan, 2016 - 17:45
