Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā sambuddhassa

Our practice follows the Thai Forest Tradition of Ajahn Chah (a branch of Theravada Buddhism) & the teachings of the Buddha as they are recorded in the Pāli Canon. The practice includes chanting in Pāli (8-10 minutes), silent meditation (30-45 minutes), a short reading from the Pāli Canon, and a metta practice.

Our next meeting is Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Lotus Light Community Center
7:00pm – 8:15pm

The Buddha taught that the giving of fearlessness (abhayadana) is one of the greatest gifts that anyone can give to others. Giving fearlessness means giving the gift of space in which others who are also learning the teachings of the Buddha and putting them into practice can feel trust, warmness, and tolerance.

Lotus Light Community Center’s address is 501 Arthur Street.

Sabbadanam dhammadanam jinati
Dhammapada, XXIV.354

You create the world in which you live
through your actions. By being generous –
not only with material things but also with your
time, your energy, your forgiveness, your
willingness to be fair and just with people –
you create a good world in which to live.

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Appamādena sampādethāti!
