Programming Notice

We will not be meeting for regularly-scheduled meditation on 27 December, 2011. Group practice will resume on 3 January, 2012.

Beginning on 11 January, our Tuesday evening discussions will involve a chapter-by-chapter introduction to Asvaghosa's The Awakening of Faith. This is a very helpful text for getting at the foundations of Mahayana Buddhist practice. It will guide our discussions for several weeks. I strongly recommend the translation by Hakeda, and encourage everyone to get their hands on a copy and read the translator's introduction before the 11th. It is not necessary to keep up with the reading to learn from the discussion, but you will certainly learn more if you are able to do that.

In the meantime, I wish you all safe travels and joyful celebrations. Namo Buddhaya!
