For next week we have decided to continue our exploration of the Paramitas. We seem to have settled on using the six Paramitas from Mahayana Buddhism and mistakenly took the second Paramita to be Patience when it is third in most lists. Anyway, Patience – the ability not to be perturbed by anything – it is for next week.
Please do your own research into the Paramitas and bring that to the discussion.
This is a link to a series of talks from a retreat that focuses on the Paramitas at Insight Retreat Center with Gil Fronsdal and Paul Haller. The first talk is a short introduction to the Paramitas and then there are talks on each Paramita.
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.
A reminder that we are not planning a Saturday sitting this month as there is a day of sitting with Leslie James on September 27th – details here.
