Dec 15: Half-Daylong in Diamond Springs, CA

The Buddha’s Words on Happiness 


Join us for an afternoon of meditation, Dharma teaching and Q&A with
Ayya Anandabodhi and Ayya Ahimsa

December 15th, Sunday, 1:30 – 5:00 pm

 In the Mangala Sutta the Buddha answers an important question, “What is happiness?” His explanation describes the Path from its beginning right through to full awakening. Using this sutta we will recognize the many wholesome ways the happiness is already arising in our lives and be inspired to keep following the Path to the highest happiness.
The afternoon will be held in Noble Silence to support deepening of mindfulness and will be suitable for those new to mediation as well as experienced practitioners.
In appreciation of all who support Aloka Vihara in any way, we offer this afternoon of practice.
Inviting newcomers as well as those already involved.

All teachings are freely offered.

Donations are welcome and will be divided between the Diamond Springs Spiritual Center (851 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA) who are hosting the event and the Saranaloka Foundation who support the nuns.
