Sutra Study Sunday – Karaniya Metta Sutta
November 5 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us as we explore the rich repository of Buddhist Sutras, both Pali Canon and Tibetan Kangyur every first Sunday of the month after the Sunday Service. Sūtra (Pali. sutta) means ‘something that was heard from someone else’ and usually connotes ‘a discourse’. The Karaniya Metta Sutta is a Buddhist scripture that teaches the practice of loving-kindness (metta). It is one of the most well-known and widely practiced suttas in Buddhism. The sutta begins with the Buddha describing the benefits of metta and then goes on to describe how to practice metta.
We will also be having a potluck, so please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
Facilitators: Lama Matthew Rice (Lobpön Palden Gocha) and Daniel Scharpenburg
