I want to take some brief time to introduce you to the two new classes I am offering in August and September. The first of these classes informs us of the early remarkable life of Siddhartha Gautama (the future Buddha) and the fateful course he took in life to make him into a great spiritual leader. Siddhartha’s curiosity about life, the reasons for him being in the life he was in and the meaning and potential of fulfillment in life were the questions that motivated him to pursue the path he chose.
The Ten Perfections follow the early teachings of the Buddha in instructing all who followed him to know that these ten perfections were about perfecting your own Buddha nature. These ten qualities are inherent in each being and express the possibility of an awakened heart in each being. We can learn how to follow them in daily living and meditation through continual practice.
In loving friendliness,
