A warm greetings to everyone in Bellisseria and Secondlife. I would like to announce an event for September for the whole community.

If you are a RL health and wellness teacher or dharma speaker you can volunteer time to speak or cover a topic during one of the days. Visit our website and email me or call the center phone number to leave a message to set up a discussion that is fitting.

Thank you for the notice. I wasn't aware of the website, that will make it easier since the Buddha Center has not had such events and yours does.

The center meditation area has been redesigned. A new building extends on the land for dharma, health and wellness, and sangha talks.

Gathering now.

Retreat day 2

Topic: $ noble truths and the 8 fold path.

How can Buddhist principles apply to everyone from all walks of life? We will discuss the realization of the 4 noble truths, and how the 8 fold path can help others be kind and compassionate, focused, and have a more peaceful life.
