Details

We will have our normal practice, which includes meditation, recitation of the precepts, and chanting. We will also have a dharma talk on, and a discussion of, the book Old Path White Clouds by Thich Nhat Hanh. This is the second of the three practices in which we'll be studying this book.

A publisher's description of Old Path white Clouds says this:

Old Path White Clouds presents the life and teachings of Gautama Buddha. Drawn directly from 24 Pali, Sanskrit, and Chinese sources, and retold by Thich Nhat Hanh in his inimitably beautiful style, this book traces the Buddha’s life slowly and gently over the course of 80 years, partly through the eyes of Svasti, the buffalo boy, and partly through the eyes the Buddha himself.

We will cover this book over three practices. The dates, chapters and subjects we'll cover are:
9/28/2019 Book 1 (Chapters 1 - 29)
10/12/2019 Book 2 (Chapters 30 - 55)
10/26/2019 Book 3 (Chapters 56 - 81)
