Five Kinds of Happiness: Part 4

with Sharon Beckman-Brindley

"But what about….."

"Bikkhus, dwell with yourselves as an island, with yourselves as a refuge, with no other refuge; with the Dhamma as an island, with the Damma as a refuge, with no other refuge."

Tonight's talk will address a few of the questions you have asked about the cultivation of happiness. We'll begin by noting that your very asking of questions is, in itself, skillful means. The Buddha invites us to contemplate and question only and always: ‘From what are sorrow, lamentation, pain, displeasure, and despair born? How are they produced?’ and, by analogy, from what is happiness born? We will explore together how to apply this inquiry to the questions you ask about happiness in the many circumstances of our individual and modern lives.

In-person participants:

  • Are required to wear masks in the building at all times.
  • Show proof of vaccination upon initial check in.
  • Name tags will be marked so that you do not have to show proof each week.

A parking lot is located on the north side of Edgewood Lane. Enter the building through the side entrance, also on Edgewood Lane, across from parking lot.
