The San Antonio Buddhism Meetup

  • Jan 26, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • Buddhist Temple of San Antonio (Chua Phuoc Hue)

This week, we will have a 20-30min meditation followed by chanting. Master Thich Phuoc Quang will be leading us in traditional chants that have been translated into
English (follow link if you want to see them before hand). This form of meditation is different from sitting meditation as the goal is to be mindful as you read aloud ancient Buddhist teachings. After the service, those who wish can stay for a vegetarian dinner. Feel free to bring a vegetarian dish, unless this is your first time. If it's your first time, you are our guest. After the first visit you're family. At 5pm (30 min prior to this service), Teacher Phuoc Quang will have an open session for the purpose of giving a brief orientation and answering any questions you may have. Also, feel free to follow this
link to our files section of the meetup. There you can find a copy of the Chant Book and a document on Buddhist Temple Etiquette.

    Robes are provided at the temple. They are very simple garments for you to put over your clothes. I have only been once but I recall one person attending did not wear a robe and it was OK. I look forward to attending again tomorrow to pay respect to the Dharma.

    I am attending for the first time and I had a question on etiquette. It said to wear a robe for the Buddha. What kind of robe? I don't understand this.
