a) Our sangha meeting on 2 July will include a mixture of some walking meditation, sitting meditation, chanting, a Dharma discussion and time for any of your questions.
We will give an explanation as to what we are about do before each section of the evening. There's no pressure to 'do it it right' - just follow everyone else! Perfection is never expected - to be realistic, perfection is never possible.
What we hope is that you feel comfortable and welcomed, soak up some of the atmosphere, gain some understanding and get a taste of what Amida Pureland Buddhists' practice is.
b) Also it's not too late to join an on-line session of chanting on Tuesday 25th June - details are in our previous newsletter :: here
Here's a :: link to some facts about Amida Shu (the Amida Pureland Buddhist School).
Here are a few short posts by Acharya Kaspalita and Reverend Satyavani, of the Amida Mandala temple in Malvern - the main Amida Shu temple in the UK:
:: How does Buddhism help?
:: What is Amida Shu Buddhism?
:: A further explanation about Amida Shu Buddhism
:: The Essence of Pureland Buddhism
If you have any more questions before you come along, you can get in touch with Reverend Sujatin :: by email
We'll also discuss simple practices you can do at home.
Do invite any friends who you think might be interested or who might appreciate developing some peace in their lives.
All are welcome - those of other faiths, seekers, Buddhists with other traditions or anyone who is curious. You are welcome to come along to every meeting, every once in a while or just the once to see what we are up to here in our 'Home Temple' in Perth.
There is no cost for the evening - however, we suggest a donation of £5 or whatever you can afford, whether more or less - we want everyone to be able to attend regardless of their financial circumstances.
Donations support the work of Amida Shu.
