Sunday Evenings from 20.00 - 21.00
The Buddhist Calendar runs on the ancient Moon cycle and it has always been
customary to use the Full Moon days as a time to reflect upon the Dhamma
and renew our commitment to the Refuges and Precepts.
There will be a short talk on one of the subjects listed below. Then 30 min. sitting. We shall end with a short reflection on the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha. Then people can take the Refuges and Precepts at whatever their level of commitment. We will finish with
prectising Metts and reading and chanting of the Metta Goodwill Sutta.
We shall clebrate the Full Moon on the nearest Sunday since this is one evening most people would be available.
A reminder will be sent a few days before, but do put the dates in your diary anyway.
