Forest Work Day Sunday Dec. 10 - Afternoon progam canceled

As the end of the year draws near and the Abhayagiri community prepares for Winter Retreat, there is still much trail maintenance and fire prevention work to do in the forest. We will therefore focus on working in the forest this weekend and have canceled the usual 2 pm Sunday program on Dec. 10. You are welcome to join us for the Sunday work afternoon, which will begin at 1 pm. For those interested in Dhamma teachings this weekend, please come to the Upasika Day on Saturday, Dec. 9 or the Lunar Observance Evening which begins at 7:30 pm on Monday, Dec. 11.

Running Away from Phantoms (Vintage 2007 talk)
Ajahn Sucitto

This Dhamma talk was offered at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery on May 26, 2007.
