Sutra Study

October 25, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

On the fourth Sunday of each month there will be a sutra study group. Each time it meets a different sutra will be discussed.  There is no fee and open to all.

Description and link to sutra:

This Sunday we will consider the Awakening of Faith, a brief but profound treatise that summarizes the essentials of Mahayana beliefs and practices. It also confronts some of the central issues of Buddhist doctrinal problems in 6th century China.  Its message is highly esteemed by all major branches of Mahayana Buddhism and it exerted a strong influence of development Chan (Zen), particularly through the teachings of our fourth and fifth Chinese ancestors, Dayi Daoxin and Daman Hongren. A copy of the BDK translation of Awakening of Faith can be downloaded at the following link:

Due to technical difficulties this Sundays Sutra study is cancelled. We are sorry and will try to reschedule.


(the meeting will open at 11:45am)
