A great way to get Dharma connected in New York!

We meet at the Rubin every Friday, except for summers. During the summer months, we meet at the Rubin the last Friday of each month, but special events will be announced like "Dharma Drink at the Beach or the Park" plus special group visits to see amazing teachers as they come to NYC over the summer! Should be awesome!!!

SUMMER NOTICE: We're meeting the First Friday of June, July and August at the Rubin, for other Fridays we'll post special events.

For people interested in Buddhism or meditation or just leading a kinder life who are up for meeting like minded people.

Dharma Drink is now Self Service!

The table is always reserved in the same spot - just show up and see what happens - just like if you were hanging out meeting other Buddhists and travelers randomly in Kathamandu, India, Japan, Korea... And don't take the RSVP too seriously - people are coming now who don't RSVP. The word is getting out....

Everyone is invited! Dharma Drink is all about building community amongst the Buddhist and like minded crowd in New York City. Greg, the founder, was inspired to start Dharma Drink by hanging out with all of the great students of all of the different lamas in Kathmandu - Kagyu, Nyingma, Sakya, Gelug - totally Rimey (also Zen, Thai, Theravadan, yoga travelers, and the curious - just about everyone!). Everyone became great friends and learned from each other. We're there every Friday night - see you there.

Motivation: To make the Rubin Museum Lounge on Friday night the Buddhist and like-minded hang-out spot in New York. If you like Buddhas or to meditate - then you'll love the Rubin!

Book Club: The Heart Sutra (Commentaries by Master Sheng Yen & Thich Nhat Hanh)

Link visible for attendees

Dear Dharma Drink Friends,

"Perhaps the best know of all Buddhist Sutras, the Heart Sutra is recited in Buddhist centers, temples, and monasteries around the world. Its popularity and importance to Buddhists, over centuries of practice, is understandable. Though brief, the Heart Sutra embodies the essence of Buddhadharma. Most longer sutras emphasize various individual aspects of Buddhadharma from many perspectives, but the Heart Sutra, jut over a page long, distills the teachings of the Buddha to their purest, clearest, most concise essence," There is No Suffering by Chan Master Sheng Yen.

BOOKS - Choose either book below:
- There is No Suffering A Commentary of Heart Sutra by Chan Master Sheng Yen. (Book 1)
- The Other Shore: A New Translation of the Heart Sutra with Commentaries by Thich Nhat Hanh (Book 2)

READING (Book 1 or Book 2):
Book 1 - Thru page 71
Book 2 - Ch 7 thru 11 (Ch7 & 8 are from prev readings)

AMAZON LINKS:

Dharma Movie Discussion: Karmalink (Cambodia/US 2021) - Tricycle Film Club Pick

Link visible for attendees

Dear Dharma Drink Friends,

Let's chat about the movie the Karmalink, a 2021 Cambodia/USA sci-fi film. Tricycle Film Club pick for Auggust 2022. Per Screenrant review: "Fresh, Beautiful Sci-Fi Blends Time & Spiritualism."

DESCRIPTION
Tricycle: "What if our past lives held the secrets to the mysteries of the present—and what if we could access past-life memories through our dreams?
Go on a mind-bending journey into karma, reincarnation, and artificial consciousness in the Cambodian sci-fi thriller Karmalink. The film tells the story of Leng Heng, a 13-year-old boy living in near-future Phnom Penh, who finds himself having vivid dreams of his previous incarnations. Following these dreams, he teams up with a young neighborhood detective to untangle his past and search for a stolen Buddha statue—and discovers in the process his connection with a neuroscientist seeking enlightenment through technology. "

REVIEW
88% Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer

Want to explore a foreign movie from Cambodia? Here's an opportunity to watch and then chat with like minded friends.

To join us you MUST first watch the film yourself and then join us for discussion, specifically why is it considered to be a "Buddhist" like film. Or maybe share some of your searches. We're here to have fun and chat so let's all have a good time.

WHERE TO WATCH? (subject to change)

Looking forward!

Eddie
