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: 26 June – The Perfection of Energy
As part of Buddhist Action Month we will be looking at the Bodhisattva Ideal, the altruistic aspect of enlightenment to inspire us. An aspiring Bodhisattva is said to practice six paramitas, or perfections.
This week Malcolm is going to consider the third perfection of virya or energy. So does this mean being a bodhisattva all about rushing here and there all day doing this and doing that, being very busy, doing lots of things, getting through a lot of work? Or is there more to it than that?
