We will be carrying on with our discussions of the paintings around the outer edge of the Wheel, paintings of Dependant Origination.
For those that could not make it last time, this means we are up to painting four: Mind-Body.
We will continue listening to the audio teaching by Gil Fronsdal on the Wheel of Life, if you have time you might like to listen to it before coming:
Please try to arrive no later than 7:45pm
As we are in the Community centre there will be a $3 door charge to cover the cost of the room.

"Wheel of Life" - http://www.buddhanet.net/wheel2.htm
"The Wheel of life illustrates in a popular way the essence of Buddhist teachings, the four truths, the existence of earthly suffering, its origin and cause, the ending or prevention of misery and the practice path to liberation from suffering.
The Wheel of life describes the cause of evil and its effects mirrored in earthly phenomena just as it is experienced by everyone from the cradle to the grave. Picture by picture it reminds us that everyone is always his or her own judge and is responsible for their own fate, because according to Karma, causes and effects are the fruits of ones own deeds."
See you soon.
