CANCELLED: International Women’s Month Talk
Sat 21st Mar : 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Sharing our PracticePractising mindfulness and loving-kindness during times of crisis is ultimately what supports us all to stay emotionally positive and to grow. We are therefore committed to continuing to share our teachings and practices with you during this challenging period. We are taking some of our classes and courses online, so please sign up to our mailing list and check our website regularly. During this period we'll be responding to emails at firstname.lastname@example.org but we won't be answering phone calls. The Buddha taught that we are deeply interconnected in seen and unseen ways. This virus has affected us all and we as a community continue to send our well-wishing and care to all those throughout the world who have been severely affected by the virus.
Everyone welcome at this celebratory International Women’s Month event in our beautiful Centre, led this year by Manishini and Dharmakarunya and organised by Sundeep. International Women’s Day is celebrated every year across the world on 8th March, but isn’t just for one day! We’ll start with a talk from Manishini on relationships between early Buddhist women, and then most likely continue the conversation over cups of tea downstairs.
No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start. No charge, although there will be an opportunity to give a donation towards sponsorship of the book covered in the talk.
Can you help out on the Day?We often need friendly Sangha members to help make this sort of event run smoothly. Much of the work is done before and after, so you'd still be able to join in with everyone else. Please contact Sundeep on email@example.com if you are interested in joining the organising team. Thank you!
Female Teachers and Pupils in Early Indian Buddhism
Manishini’s talk will concentrate on female teachers and their female disciples from over two thousand years ago, using information from inscriptions at cave or monument sites throughout India, showing the esteem with which these early Buddhist female teachers were held.
