Abbey hosting ‘Sharing the Dharma Day’

Print Article

Compassionate living is the theme for this month’s Sharing the Dharma Day talk at Sravasti Abbey — the Tibetan Buddhist monastery near Newport — on Sunday, Nov. 5. The series of monthly talks is based on, An Open-Hearted Life, a book published by Shambala and co-written by Venerable Thubten Chodron, Sravasti Abbey founder and abbess, and clinical psychologist Dr. Russell Kolts.

Every month, on Sharing the Dharma Day, Sravasti Abbey opens its doors to people of all faiths and backgrounds who would like to know more about Buddhist teachings. All are welcomed; friendly curiosity and openness to learn are the only pre-requisites.

In addition to the talk, the day’s schedule includes a guided meditation, vegetarian potluck lunch, and facilitated discussion on the topic. The program is offered freely, and donations as well as food offerings for the resident nuns and monks are welcomed.

The first session begins at 9:45 a.m., potluck lunch is at noon, and the program ends at 3 p.m. Please bring food to share for lunch, avoiding onions, garlic, and leeks as well as meat, fish, or chicken. Dress is casual, although modesty is appropriate for a monastic environment. Short skirts and shorts are discouraged.

Sravasti Abbey is located at 692 Country Lane, Newport. For more information and directions call 509-447-5549 or email office.sravasti@gmail.com. Find additional information about Sravasti Abbey at Sravasti.org.
