General Practice Sunday

Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016, 10:00 am
General Practice Sunday;

Religion

Buddhist Faith Fellowship of Connecticut, 343 Washington Terrace, Middletown, CT , 06457

Every 2nd Sunday of the month
Open to all – No Experience Necessary

General Practice Sunday is our traditional format with voice and sitting meditation and other short practices that are designed to unfold presence and authentic spiritual expression. Included in this Sunday morning practice is a talk or guided discussion segment that promotes deepening knowledge and insight into Buddhist teaching and practice.

This week’s discussion topic is titled Love and Emptiness. The first realization on the Mahayana Buddhist path is our own emptiness. We look at the self and find nothing permanent. The next realization is egolessness of other and the self. Emptiness is empty of our assumption, and it is full of compassion. Discovering our selfless nature is true freedom.
