Do you have a question for a Buddhist teacher about an aspect of practice, theory, or ethics in Buddhism? Have you been struggling with a particular problem in your practice that you can’t seem to overcome? Would you like to know more about Buddhism from a Buddhist teacher in a relaxed, casual environment? Then join us April 30th from 730 to 830pm after our regular sangha event for a Q&A with Ben Mikolaj, our Associate Spiritual Director. Any topic related to Buddhism or meditation is up for grabs. Tea will be served.
Some sample questions asked in the past which you may wish to ask include:
Does emptiness mean nothing exists?
Is it okay to eat meat and be a Buddhist?
How do I stop having so many thoughts in meditation?
Is Buddha a god?
What makes someone a Buddhist or not a Buddhist?
Is karma (kamma) the same thing as destiny?
What should I be doing in my daily meditation practice?
Can Buddhists serve in the military?
What meditation can help me overcome anger/depression/fear?
You can ask these or any question you like that is related to Buddhism. There is no set fee for this session, but we ask for a dana (donation) of what you think the teachings are worth or what you can afford. If you would like further guidance in giving dana, we suggest a range of $5 to $10 for this session.
