At the end of our last meeting we didn’t have a chance to have a larger discussion about next week’s topic so the stragglers amongst us talked about discussing the Paramitas. In Mahayana Buddhism there are six, in Theravada, ten.
This is a link to a series of talks from a retreat that focusses on the Paramitas at Insight Retreat Center with Gil Fronsdal and Paul Haller. The first talk is a short introduction to the Paramitas.
Please do your own research into the Paramitas and bring that to the discussion as well and please send information that you find helpful to the email group.
Perhaps we can have a general discussion and then transition into the first Paramita – generosity. There are some reflections on generosity on Access to Insight.
The schedule is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
The sitting takes place at BIBS – location in the sidebar.
