Whatever an enemy may do to an enemy,
or haters, one to another,
far worse is the harm
from one’s own wrongly directed mind.

Next Tuesday we will be continuing our exploration of concentration. There are many resources available on this subject so here are a couple of suggestions for places to start you on your way:

Gil Fronsdal offered a series of talks on concentration earlier his year.

Joseph Goldstein offered a couple of talks on concentration as part of his series on the Satipatthana Sutta: What concentration is and why it is important and How to practice.

We meet at BIBS – location in the sidebar – and the schedule for the evening is:

6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
