Event description

Description

What did the Buddha say about race and gender - and how does it relate to the path of awakening? On this occasion Bhante Suddhāso will be reading from the Vāseṭṭha Sutta (KN 5.35) and explaining how it illustrates a Buddhist perspective on contemporary social issues of bias and prejudice.

All levels of practitioners are welcome.
