Learn & Lunch Seminar

Learn about Buddhism and how to walk its path

September 29, 2013

Buddhist Faith Fellowship,

Mansfield Freeman Center of East Asian Studies,

Wesleyan University,

343 Washington Terrace, Middletown, Ct

12:30 – 2:30 p.m.

Newbies, beginners and the curious and the general public are invited to attend our free of charge seminar.

This special informal Q & A Seminar will explore what Buddhists believe and experience, their practices and rituals. If you are new to Buddhism, this is a great way to listen, learn and ask questions of certified lay teachers in a warm and caring environment.

Some of these questions that can be explored: What is the purpose of life? Why do we suffer?  What does it mean to be a limited being? Who was the Buddha? What is the Buddhist path?  What is the Shin Buddhist path? Why should we meditate and what are its limits? How do I meditate? What is faith? Why do Shin voice the nembutsu?  Is the Buddha of Immeasurable Life and Light a God? What is karma? What is rebirth? Is Other Power the same as Higher Power? Is the Pure Land a heaven?  How do I practice in my daily life? How can Buddhism transform my life?

*No need to RSVP.  Wear casual clothing and do not forget to bring lunch.
