Foundational Buddhist Teachings
The Foundational Buddhist Teachings study schedule is subject to change, because sometimes we take a one-class break from our series for a change of pace, and sometimes we end up spending more than one class on a topic. Check back here for updates.
Studying ahead will definitely deepen your experience of this series, but it isn’t necessary. The links below are to episodes of Domyo’s Zen Studies Podcast, which you can listen to or read.
January 14th – Class cancelled due to weather predictions
January 28th – The Hindrance of Sloth-and-Torpor and its Antidotes (The Five Hindrances)
February 11th – The Hindrance of Skeptical Doubt and its Antidotes (The Five Hindrances)
Precept Study Classes
Every year we study the Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts in preparation for Jukai (May 17th), the ceremony where people can receive the precepts and formally become a Buddhist. If you are thinking of taking Jukai this year (2020), please plan to attend all of these classes (or plan to listen to the audio if you can’t attend). Even those of us who have been committed to the precepts for a long time find it useful to explore them regularly.
Precept study classes will be led by senior students who have taken Jukai.
