This Sunday I'll be talking about what we mean when we say "nirvana," "enlightenment," or "the awakened state." How does this differ from our usual ways of being? How is the awakened state described in the Buddha's teachings? Why are we so attracted to this possibility? Did the Buddha really mean WE ordinary twenty-first century westerners can aspire to this goal? What gets in our way?
Come and bring your curiosity and we'll explore this topic, and practice together. We'll also honor our mothers and send lovingkindness to all mothers, and to ourselves.
Looking forward to being with you,
