This group is for the study and discussion of Buddhist Dharma at Bodhi Monastery (http://bodhimonastery.org/). We are non-sectarian, and draw upon Theravada and Chinese (Zen, Pureland, etc.) traditions reflecting the main spiritual teachers of Bodhi Monastery: Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhikkhu_Bodhi), Master Jen–Chun (http://bodhimonastery.org/ven-jen-chun.html) and Master Yin–Shun (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_Shun).

For other events at the monastery, see their daily life schedule (http://bodhimonastery.org/daily-life.html).

`Venerable sir, this is half of the holy life, that is, good friendship, good companionship, good comradeship.”

“Not so, Ānanda! Not so, Ānanda! This is the entire holy life, Ānanda, that is, good friendship, good companionship, good comradeship.`
