Discovering Buddhism: How to Develop Bodhichitta

The next teaching in this series includes practices to benefit animals, to be held at a local park. Students are welcome to bring small caged pets and friendly leashed dogs to class. Cats and small pets must be in travel carriers, dogs must be leashed. Please bring water and dog waste bags and something for yourself to sit on.

We'll also bless and liberate worms together! The center will purchase worms from a local bait shop for the purposes of freeing them from what would surely be a horrible death. This is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist practice and a great way to accumulate merit for all involved! This is a family friendly event, children are welcome to attend

Please, don't forget to check the weather before coming and make sure to bring appropriate shelter, plenty of water, and other comforts for you and your pets!

GENERAL DIRECTIONS: Take I-95 south of the Beltway, exit at Occoquan and travel north on Rt. 123 approximately 5 miles. Turn left onto Hampton Road and drive 3 miles to the entrance on the left.

For even better directions please use Google Maps or MapQuest.
