The Path of Transformation: Sutta Study

A Half-Day Retreat with Kim Allen

Sunday June 21, 2015

1:00pm – 4:00pm

San Francisco

 

In this afternoon of Dhamma reflection and practice, we will look at teachings from the early discourses of the Buddha on the topic of the transformation that occurs through Buddhist practice. In particular we will read and discuss the Angulimāla Sutta (MN 86), in which a murderer becomes enlightened, and the Pañña Sutta (AN 8.2), which lists eight conditions for acquiring wisdom. Previous experience with Buddhist texts is not required.

Cost: This class is being offered on a dana basis. No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.
