“Is modern life too busy to practise the Buddhist path effectively? Not so, there are many ways in which we can utilise our lives to develop our practise, with great benefit”
Come to find out on this one evening.
Peter Kingsford came to Buddhism in 1997, and immediately felt an affinity with the teachings, akin to ‘coming home’. A self-professed Dhamma addict, he has attended a number of silent vipassana retreats, as well as other,’daily life’ retreats, and strives to incorporate the teachings into all aspects of life. Peter is a long-time volunteer at the Buddhist library, and in his work as an airline pilot claims the Buddhist path is conducive to smoother landings.
All Sessions by Dana.
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs). You are welcome to ask for a receipt for your dana which is tax deductible.
