The reason to be vegetarian are realistic and sensible, and based on long term thinking.  When we think seriously about the impact that our food practices have on our body, on the environment and on the animal themselves, it is clear that logic supports abstaining from meat.

  • 11:00 Book Study “Interconnected: Embracing Life in Our Global Society” by the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
Opener: FeeLi
Thought for the week:
 
It is a common experience when watching the news on the TV or computer screen to feel that all the suffering we see is being transmitted to us, making us suffer ourselves……
The damage is not done by the news of suffering.  The real damage is done by our own hardening of heart to that suffering.  We harm ourselves when we close ourselves off from others. This makes it especially important that we actively work to keep our mind and heart open, for our own sake and for the benefit of others.
 
from “Interconnected: Embracing Life in Our Global Society” by the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje   
Yours in the Dharma,
Mary Ann Duncan

We are happy to announce the visit of Khenpo Ugyen Tenzin on July 20-21. He will teach on the Medicine Buddha practice. See schedule on “This week’s teaching”

Week of July 15-21, 2019

Posted on July 16th, 2019 by Laura Roth

Dear Dharma friends,
 
Tuesday, 7/16 7 PM Green Tara practice
 
Saturday 7/20 and Sunday 7/21 Albany KTC is pleased to offer a special teaching on:
 
Medicine Buddha: Sutra, Empowerment and Practice
 
Taught by Khenpo Ugyen Tenzin; Translator, Khenpo Sangye Trinley
 
Saturday 7/20 Teaching: 
  • 10 AM – 12 
  • 2:30 PM – 4:30  
Sunday 7/21
  • 10 AM – 12  Empowerment
  • 2:30PM – 4:30 Practice
The Medicine Buddha Sutra was taught by the Buddha in Vaisala, India, to a large gathering of monks, nuns and Bodhsattvas.  The practice of Medicine Buddha or Sangye Menla was brought to Tibet by Shantarakshita (8th Century CE) and spread widely by Atisha (11th Century CE).  This Mahayana practice is about healing oneself and others of sickness, which ultimately arises from our kleshas or negative mental patterns.
 
Suggested Donation $20 per session ($15 for members) but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
 
 
I hope you can join us for this special teaching and practice.  Wishing you peace, happiness and excellent health and well being.
 
Yours in the Dharma,
 
Mary Ann Duncan

Only freedom developed on the basis of a realistic view of who we are and how we relate to others can be authentic and extended universally to all.  If we acknowledge our interdependence, and take into account the vast networks of interconnections in which our lives and actions are embedded, we will find that our own freedom is inseparable from the freedom of all other people.  When we truly appreciate this fact, we experience interdependent freedom – a freedom that does not detract from others’ freedom.  This is the freedom that we can all enjoy together without conflict.

The essence of meditation is awareness.  If we lose our awareness, we are not meditating. 
Awareness is like a crystal or mirror that reflects different colors and angles: 
forms, sounds and feelings are different aspects of awareness and exist within awareness.
