Young Buddhists: First Friday
Friday, October 6th @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Four Mind Turning Reflections
The preciousness of the human life
The truth of impermanence
The meaning of karma
The nature of samsara.
These reflections are often said to be the bedrock of Buddhist practice, in that they encourage us to make our lives meaningful. They also act as a mirror, as they are all to do with the nature of existence. If we reflect upon them we are confronted with Reality – the reality of our life and of life in general.
Reflecting on these themes can give us a clear vision on how we can free ourselves from suffering, and increase our motivation to meditate and engage in other Buddhist practices.
Come along and find out more! Complete beginners welcome.
