Upāsakā Day: June 4, 2017

We hope you can join us at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery for the next Upāsakā Day on Sunday, June 4, a day of community, Dhamma study, meditation, and renewal. The event will begin at 10 AM with the taking of precepts.

The group session will be livestreamed at https://youtu.be/Ij8MV7h00KQ starting at 1PM.

Our theme for the day will be Sutta Study: Two Kinds of Thought, and The Removal of Distracting Thought. Luang Por Pasanno and senior monastics of Abhayagiri have graciously offered to lead us in an exploration of how to skillfully work with thought in meditation and otherwise.
