A Gift of Dharma Delight from Venerable Jing Yuan of BW Monastery in PEI
We had our formal lessons starting today, a weeklong program skilfully crafted with care by the organiser.
The venue was at a sports stadium. The morning topic focused on the beauty of Lamrim - The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment.
The organiser invited the Advisor of BW Monastery, Venerable Jing Yuan to deliver a discourse in the afternoon. His discourse was on the teachings and the importance of relying on the teacher in our infinite lives as a Buddhist practitioner. A video on “How a Teacher Guides his Disciples” was shown to make us think of the benefits of relying on a good teacher; to always remember and appreciate their kindness and teachings. This brought back memories of our visit to the Chuan Deng Si monastery yesterday.
For Buddha’s Teaching to continue and benefit all beings forever, let’s supplicate that the construction of the Chuan Deng Si monastery will be ready in PEI soon!
