Sunday Study and Practice Group

 

Practice starts 10.15 am., Study Group at 11.30 am. every Sunday at the Nelson Buddhist Centre

Every Sunday there is an in-depth group exploration into the meaning of significant Buddhist teachings. The Sunday group has been operating for many months and participants have found it useful and enjoyable and so are keen for it to continue. Recently the group completed a cycle of study so now is a good time for newcomers who might like to take part to join in.

The current group consists of people from a wide range of backgrounds, not all Buddhist. All are most welcome.

 

The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas

by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo

 

Cycle starts 11.30 am. Sunday 2nd December

A pithy set of mind training instructions which presents an entire view of the path of a bodhisattva, someone whose aim is to be of benefit to all sentient beings. If you want to know what the Buddhist path is, this is a complete description. It will doubtless provoke much thought and discussion.

 

Sunday Practice Session

10.15 - 11.30 am every Sunday

 Each week, prior to the study group, there is a practice session based on the Rigdzin Practice Book which includes meditations on Manjusri (for clarity from confusion) and Vajrasattva (for purification of negative thoughts and actions.) It concludes with a short reading of the King of Prayers - Samantabhadra's Prayer for Excellent Conduct, an inspirational practice which invokes the highest aspirations of the human spirit.

 

You are welcome to attend either the practice session and/or the study group.

 

Cost: Donation at the door. Free to members.
