    This weekly Mindfulness Meditation Practice allows you to meditate with others every Thursday lunchtime, either at the Library or online via Zoom. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, this drop-in class will help support you in establishing and strengthening your practice at this time.

    Each month we invite a guest teacher to facilitate the meditation practice. Come once, come every week – OR if you prefer, connect once, connect every week – for this informal gathering.

    If you want to attend online, please be sure to register so we can email you the Zoom link before each class.

     

    Guest teacher for November:  Sister Sudhira

    Venerable Sister Sudhira Bhikkhuni took her novice ordination in 2000 and her higher ordination as a full bhikkuni in July 2004 under the Most Venerable Rahatungoda Saddha Sumana, a senior Bhikkhuni from a small nunnery in Eheliyagoda, Sri Lanka. Sister is currently based in Sydney and holds a chaplaincy position at the Prince of Wales Hospital and generously gives her time as a volunteer at the Buddhist Library. A very personable and gentle teacher, Sister brings to her teaching a deep sense of kindness and compassion.

     

    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 Library offers events and classes without requesting a fee and it’s 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 to spread the Dhamma.
