City Center--September 14 Meeting (and reading)


At our September 7th meeting, we decided to read a book and discuss it at our meeting four weeks from now.  The book will be Walpola Ruhala's "What Buddha Taught."  Ruhala was a Theravadin monk and has been described as one of the 20th century's pre-eminent Sri Lankan intellectuals.  He held a chair in History and Religious Studies at Northwestern University.  We will use this excellent survey of Buddha's teachings as a jumping off place.  You can get the book at your favorite local bookstore, or on-line.

Next Tuesday night we will delve deeper into the zen instruction to sit mushotoku--without a gaining idea.

Join us.
