Event description

Description

This is an Intensive Sutta Study Class workshop series (4 bi-weekly classes).

Buddhism is well-known for its intricate philosophy and profound meditation practices. However, the Buddha also gave a tremendous amount of wise advice about living peacefully with others - advice not just to monastics, but also to kings and ministers, merchants and priests, craftspeople and laborers; advice about how to interact harmoniously with people of different backgrounds and conditions; about how to have mutually beneficial friendships and relationships; about how to live in the world as a beacon of harmony and goodwill in everything we do.

During this series of workshops, we will closely examine the Buddha's teachings on communal harmony as preserved in the Pāli Suttas (the oldest extant collection of his words), and discuss how we can adapt and apply them to contemporary circumstances.

DATES / TIME: 11/7, 11/21, 12/5, and 12/19 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Bhante Suddhāso is a Buddhist monk living in New York City. The co-founder of Buddhist Insights, a non-profit organization connecting people with monastics, his work aims to convey Buddhist concepts and their practical applicability to everyday life. Bhante Suddhāso has studied under the guidance of some of the most important names in Western Buddhism, such as Ajahn Pasanno, Ajahn Amaro, Ajahn Vīradhammo, and Bhante Gunaratana. He was initially trained in Soto Zen Buddhism at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center. Subsequently, he was ordained at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in California, where he was trained in the Thai Forest Tradition of Theravāda Buddhism. Since then he has lived at a variety of monasteries from different Buddhist traditions in both rural and urban environments. A dedicated teacher, Suddhāso has taught to people of all different ages and walks of life, as well as college students of universities like Harvard, New York University, Fordham University, University of Mary Washington, and Suffolk County Community College. Bhante Suddhāso brings to the table his first-hand, in-depth experience of both Theravāda and Soto Zen (where his first encounter with Buddhism took place in 2003) as well as scholarly knowledge of all other Buddhist traditions. www.bhantesuddhaso.com
