Approaching the Dharma10906152_902980526413155_9188370001575299788_n-300x300-1

Tuesday – 28 February, 7pm to 9pm

The Dharma is the teaching of the Buddha, one of the most important aspects of Buddhism. But how are we to approach these teachings? Are they commandments everyone must follow. Or are they just interesting philosophical ideas? What is their purpose? What do they lead to? And what do you do if you disagree with them?

Come along and hear Akashagarbha talk on the traditional Buddhist approach to the Dharma.

Everyone welcome

Cost: By donation
