Meditation and Dharma Talk with Yushin Tipton: Right Effort

July 18, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

The Fourfold Right Diligence is nourished by joy and interest. The Buddha asked the monk Sona, “What happens if the string of your instrument is too loose?” “When you pluck it, there will be no sound,” Sona replied. “What happens when the string is too taut?” “It will break.” “The practice of the Way is the same,” the Buddha said.

Please join us for this weekly meeting and teaching. Everyone is welcome.

For the next months, the Guiding Council will be leading the Sangha in an examination of the basics of Dharma. The Sunday Dharma Talks from June 13th – August 1st will focus on Walking the Eightfold Path: Extraordinary teachings for an ordinary life.

The Buddha taught the following eight elements as essential to realization:

  1. Right View
  2. Right Intention
  3. Right Speech
  4. Right Action
  5. Right Livelihood
  6. Right Effort
  7. Right Mindfulness
  8. Right Concentration

We’ll explore these eight aspects of the Buddhist path to enlightenment and how we can apply these ancient teachings to help us live our day-to-day lives more skillfully.

There will be time for meditation, a dharma (teaching) talk by one of our regular or guest teachers, and time for your comments and questions.

Cost: Donation basis, there is no charge to participate. Our center and teachers are supported by your generosity. Please give from your ability and heart.
