Living the Suttas – Exploring Ancient Buddhist Texts

Sun 31st Mar : 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Old Scrolls

Dharmakarunya leads a monthly discussion group for Mitras and Order Members wanting to understand more deeply the teachings of the suttas, and put them into practice in their lives. The suttas we’re studying are all available online, usually from Access to Insight.

This time we will be studying the Garava Sutta (SN 6.2). Please read it in advance and bring a print or virtual copy with you.

• No need to book, just turn up from 1 pm onwards
• It's always safest to check the website before setting off in case the details have changed


Living the Suttas

The suttas of the Pali Canon provide our most direct link to the Buddha; his enlightened mind speaking straight to our minds. The suttas are of immense value to our practice, yet we may find their form and language unfamiliar in the twenty-first century world. Approaching the suttas together can help us understand their meaning and apply the teachings in our practice.

We will (re-) discover the suttas together in a friendly, informal and practical way, and reading the sutta in advance will help us go more deeply into the words of the Buddha.
