This month we hope that the evening is especially
welcoming for beginners.
The meeting will include a mixture of some walking meditation, sitting meditation, chanting, a Dharma talk 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 need to worry about whether you're getting it right or not - just follow what everyone else is doing. 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 we do here.
Here's a :: link to some facts about Amida Shu (the Amida Pureland Buddhist School).
Also, here are a few short posts by Reverends Kaspalita and 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.
During the evening there will be time for tea together and you can ask any questions you have.
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 in the UK and Delhi.
