Join us for coffee and an informal discussion about Buddhism at Starbucks in Target.
The title of this Wednesday's meeting is "The Greater the Purpose...." When our goal/purpose is important then the means of how we aim to attain that goal becomes equally important. Before the means is decided, the goal must first be clarified. Only after the goal is decided, can we choose what is the quickest and most effective way of getting there. People often ask, "is it OK for Buddhists to eat meat, get married, strive for success", and so on. These questions can be best answered once the purpose of the Buddhist teachings have been understood.
We will read story #37 from the book Something You Forgot...Along the Way, and selected paragraphs from the book You Were Born For A Reason.
Looking forward to seeing you.
