The Pleasures of Giving and Receiving this Sunday, January 26, 2014 at Alameda Sangha
Come and explore the pleasures of giving and receiving. The Buddha taught that generosity is not only a wholesome way to incline the mind, but also a cultivated practice that reaps many rewards for both the giver and receiver. It is a great intention to cultivate for the new year.
Please read the handout here: Dana in the Theravadan Tradition by Gil Fronsdal to get a complete understanding of how and why the importance of this teaching arose and what we can do to reverse the paradigm of staunch individualism and independence rather than inter-dependence in our country today!
Do not forget to sign up for our daylong on February 22, Saturday at the church from 9 to 430 taught by Baruch and I. Postcards will be available to keep and pass out around the island, this Sunday during the break.
Looking forward to seeing all of you,
with metta, Pauletta
