Then on the last Friday of the month, meet up online via Zoom to exchange ideas and opinions with others who’ve read the book, and expand your understanding of Buddhism.

    Message from KK Lim;

    Dear Friends
    The Book Group will have its annual year-end holiday break, resuming meetings at the end of February 2023.

    Over the past three years, we have had wonderful participation from individuals throughout Australia as well as several countries around the world. In addition to their generosity in sharing their understanding of specific Buddhist teachings in the monthly discussions, it has been great to meet and listen to how each are impacted by the Dhamma in their daily lives.

    We hope to continue these interactions through the Buddhist Library’s zoom meetings when the Book Group discussions resume. Keep your eyes out for the next topic and book which should be out at the end of January 2023. You can also use the break to check out the available e-books and may be able to suggest interesting items you come across.

    In the meantime, have a good holiday period and practice opportunity!”

    All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.

    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The dana you give helps to maintain the Library and allows it to offer more teachings on the Dhamma so that others may benefit in the future. It is up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers who spread the Dhamma.
