Tuesdays, 7 pm to 9 pm
Every Tuesday at 7pm is Open Night at Wellington Buddhist Centre. This is a time when anybody can come along no matter what level of experience they have. It is a great introduction to Wellington Buddhist Centre, as well as a chance to contact like-minded people. The evening usually starts off with a presentation of an aspect of Buddhism or meditation. If you want to stay on we have a tea break followed by meditation and rituals.
Suggested donation: $15 (waged) / $10 (low income)
Next Open Night: 29 August – The Dangers and Defects of Samsara.
On this evening Upekshamani will be talking on the fourth and final reminder which tells us that there is suffering in life. The purpose of this reminder encourages us to be aware of the reality of the things large and small that we find unsatisfactory.
Everyone experiences dissatisfaction: not just us, maybe reflecting in this way can help us relate to our suffering or dissatisfaction more lightly and avoid unhelpful responses. We can also see that since the world is large and complex and ever-changing, we are never going to get things exactly as we want them.
