“If we want to make progress [on the Buddhist Path] and continue to make progress there must be a radical change… from the Path of Irregular Steps to the Path of Regular Steps.” ~ Sangharakshita, p. 131, Guide to the Buddhist Path.
Perhaps you set a goal for 2015 to ‘get serious’ about your practice. Perhaps you want to make connections with others in our local sangha who are seriously committed to following a spiritual path. Perhaps you want to get your practice back on track.
Aryaloka will provide a program in 2015 to help you attain your goals. The Path of Practice is open to those who want to deepen their practice in 2015. The Path of Practice will offer monthly meetings on Sunday mornings beginning at 9:00 am and concluding at 1:00 pm. The first meeting is Sunday, January 11. Amala and Khemavassika will facilitate the series and they will be joined by various order members who will lead meetings.
What will each morning consist of? While each meeting will differ, shrine room practice will be important – meditation, puja. Some mornings will feature sutta or sutra study, others may have a talk. There will be the opportunity to share your experiences with others in the program.
Who can participate? The series in open to order members, mitras and anyone who has come along to Aryaloka for a while and can commit to participating for the entire series. This is key – we will create a spiritual community within a spiritual community, making it important to agree to participate consistently.
Please register with the office. If you have questions, please contact Khemavassika, in Amala’s absence (Khemavassika@gmail.com). Fees for the series are offered on a sliding scale fee – there is an option to pay for the series on a quarterly basis.
