ONLINE: Sangha Night - The Parable of the Raft

The Sangha is the Buddhist term for the community of people wishing to learn from the Buddha's teachings. Order Members take turns to lead these evenings, practising and communicating Buddhism. A Sangha evening might include a talk, meditation, discussion, workshop, devotional practice, and tea. Open to all (though it is helpful if you have had an introduction to the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices).

The shore we are standing on represents our present, ego-bound existence, with its suffering and its disharmony. The other shore represents Enlightenment. The Buddha likens the Dharma to a raft whose function is to carry us to the other shore. Are we using our raft well? Are we using it appropriately?

The evening will include meditation, reading and discussion.
