Online Sangha Evening: Buddhist Texts with Ratnaguna

Fri 12th Mar : 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Virtual Event
Ratnaguna

At our fortnightly Sangha Evenings, centre regulars get together for talks, discussion, ritual and friendship. These sessions are currently organised by Taravandana and Karen Levin. Everyone welcome, no need to book.
 
Ratnaguna joins us this evening to talk about reading Buddhist texts. There will be opportunities to ask questions and to meet Sangha friends in small groups to explore the material.

Wouldn’t it be better if you practised the Dharma?

Ratnaguna will look at a couple of sections from the Kadam Thorbu – Precepts Collected from Here and There – a Tibetan text from the Book of Kadam. It’s a number of teachings from Atisa and his disciples, especially the layman Dromtonpa, or simply Drom. It’s an informal exposition of how to live as a Bodhisattva, and its main topics are compassion, emptiness, renunciation, the importance of practice, and Bodhicitta. Neat Dharma, with nothing added.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
