Sunday Sutra Recitation via Zoom

WHEN:
Sun, 22 August, 2021
9:45 am - 1:00 pm

WHERE:
Sutra Recitation Zoom Room

 

Connection and community practice during the current lockdown is so important. Join us from the safety and comfort of your own home every Sunday in August, via Zoom, to recite these powerful sutras to help remove hindrances to ourselves, the centre, the community and the world. By reading these sutras, the direct teachings of the Buddha, you can pacify suffering of yourself and others and be of greater benefit to other sentient beings.

We are collecting a count of the full recitations to offer and dedicate to the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. If you are unable to complete a full recitation in the Zoom session, we ask that you please try to finish it during the week, and let us know.

“A special set of sutras called dharmaparyayas or “transformative teachings,” including the Sanghata Sutra, function to transform those who hear, recite or write out them in particular ways, in the same way as meeting a buddha in the flesh.”
