Mara in our Daily Life

September 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

TONIGHT’S TOPIC: Mara is the tempter we read about in the legend of Shakyamuni Buddha’s awakening. He makes mundane things alluring and the negative positive. Mara personifies the demise of the spiritual life, unskillfulness, and unwholesome impulses. We will discuss what this means to us in our daily lives.

BLENDED FORMAT: Join us online or in-person.
6:00-7:00pm–Daily Service (gongyo) and two periods of meditation IN PERSON and live streamed. Sign up here to receive the links to our weekly services if you’d like to join remotely.
7:00-7:30pm–Log into Zoom for our BLENDED sangha discussion.

You are encouraged to attend / view the service before the discussion. However, if the timing of the service doesn’t work out for you, you can still join the discussion portion at 7:00.
People with all levels of experience or inexperience with Buddhist teachings and practices are welcome to join this class. Winding Path Sangha meets every Monday evening at this time for Buddhist teachings and practices. New people are invited to visit us any time.
