Hi everyone. We have an outline for our summer programme. We’ll be listening to talks and doing things based around the Mandala of the Five Jinnas. A Mandala is many things but you could think of it as a symbolic representation of ‘reality’; it maps how the pieces of the whole fit together. In this case our Mandala maps how various aspects of the Buddha’s Wisdom and Enlightenment complement and augment each other. We’ll link this to the actual setting of our practice in Yarmouth and seek out/explore the strength and beauty of that context. Anyone who knows our two main meditation practices is welcome to join us on these evenings. We hope to light up the summer!

12 June: An introduction to Mandalas and the Five-Buddha (Jinna) Mandala.
19 June: Exploring our personal Mandalas – seeing how the pieces of our lives fit together.
