Friends’ Night

October 15 @ 6:45 pm - 9:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:45pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 17, 2019

ParamitasFriends’ Nights at Aryaloka are from 6:45-9:15 p.m., when we gather to meditate and explore aspects of Buddhism through workshops, talks, study, ritual, or discussion. The emphasis is on practical application of Buddhist principles in our own lives. Although there is no fee for this event, donations are appreciated.

The 40-minute silent meditation in the main shrine room is typically not guided. An option for a guided meditation is offered in the library, after which, you can join the rest of the group for the second half of the evening. If you prefer to have more intensive prior instruction, see the Programs section for more information on introductory classes.

Friends’ Night activities include:

• 6:45 – Tea and announcements

• 7:00 – Meditation

• 8:00 – Study, discussion, or talk on the evening’s topic

• 9:15 – End

With all of the activities, you are free to participate or to just sit and listen – nothing is compulsory.

Aryaloka has collection boxes in the entryway for local charities. Aryaloka is currently collecting for the Safe Harbor Recovery Center in Portsmouth. Safe Harbor provides support and resources for anyone affected by alcohol and drug addiction. Safe Harbor needs cleaning products, office supplies, and personal care items. We are also collecting non-perishable food for the Newmarket Food Pantry. Please feel free to bring a donation for these charities when you arrive. Your generosity makes such a difference in many people’s lives! We thank you for your past donations and encourage you to continue. With gratitude, the Generosity Kula.
