At the next meeting of the Theravada group on Thursday 15th June we will continue with the third in the series of talks by Bhante Bodhidhamma on the First Noble Truth this time focussing on the Three Characteristics of dukkha- unsatisfactoriness, anicca - change, and anatta - insubstantiality.
On 18th May, the Theravada group will be listening to a podcast on 'The First Noble Truth - Dukkha, Dukkha,' by Bhante Bodhidhamma, who runs the Satipanya Trust in Shropshire. The Satipanna Centre teaches meditation in the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw, who lived in Myanmar.
On Thursday 4th May the Abbot of Cittaviveka Monastery, Ajahn Karuniko, will be leading the Theravada meeting. We will start with chanting, meditate for about 30 minutes and then listen to Ajahn's talk. He will have just returned from a pilgrimage in Japan, so question-time will be an opportunity to learn about Buddhist practice there.
If you are new to meditation, Ajahn Karuniko will give guidance during the session.
