Tuesday Sangha Evening (7.30 – 9.30pm)
Open to all who have some experience of meditating focusing on the breath and preferably are familiar with some basic Buddhist teachings such as the Four Noble Truths our Sangha night class is a chance to explore Buddhism and Meditation through a programme of Meditation, ritual and study. The introduction to Meditation and Buddhism course gives a particularly good entry into this class.
Our Sangha night’s are a combination of both stand alone evenings and themed blocks. Each block will be for 3 or 4 weeks where we will explore different themes. These will be run by a team of people who will each lead an evening on the theme. We would like to encourage people to come for the whole block to get the most out of it but if you can’t make all of them feel free to just drop in during these times.
Sangha night classes are run on a donation basis.
17th, with Sasanaratna, “The Four Mythical Events in the Buddha’s Awakening”
The Buddha is said to have gained Awakening on the full moon of May and to have begun teaching on the fullmoon of July. In the two months in between four mythical episodes are said to have taken place.
Sasanaratna will lead study on an extract from “A Guide to the Buddhist Path,” in which Sangharakshita offers his interpretations of these four mysterious scenes.
