Buddhism 101 – Special Event & Community Meal in Kingston
Fri 24 Mar 6.30-8.30pm
BUDDHISM IS ONE of the world’s largest religions and it originated in India 2,500 years ago. Buddhism is as relevant and applicable to our busy modern lives today as it was in ancient times, and it is a way of life that is available to anyone who wishes to experience deep inner peace and happiness through the practices of meditation and training the mind.
IN ADDITION TO TEACHING MEDITATION, Buddha revealed how to release ourself from suffering permanently and attain liberation (nirvana), as well as how to attain the everlasting happiness and bliss of full enlightenment.
AT THIS SPECIAL EVENT IN KINGSTON, Buddhist Teacher Diana Waterhouse will explore the basic practices of Buddhism including:
- What is Buddhism? & Who is Buddha?
- The 4 Noble Truths
- The Law of Karma (actions and their effects)
- What is Emptiness? The true nature of reality
THE CLASS WILL INCLUDE a practical demonstration of how to set up a Buddhist shrine, as well as “Ask a Buddhist” Q&A at the end of the session. Q&A will be followed by a vegetarian community dinner which is included in the $17 booking fee.
Everybody is welcome to attend this event, whether you are wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the Buddhist path or are just curious to learn what Buddhism is all about.
