The next meeting will be Saturday, September 9.
We will discuss Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki.The meetings take place in the Memorial Hall from 9:30-11:30am. There will be a brown bag lunch afterwards. There is no cost to attend. Beginning with our October 7, meeting, we will start in on the Larger Sutra, translated by Hisao Inagaki.
There are two buying options for this book. One is a shorter book containing only the Sutra itself and can be purchased using this link to the Buddhist Churches of America (BCA) bookstore.
The other is longer, more expensive, ($65) and it includes a lot more information. Again, you can find it at the BCA bookstore. We will be using these same books over the course of several months.
Other titles we are interested in reading soon:
The Buddhist World of Awakening – by T. Shigaraki
The Natural Way of Shin Buddhism – By Tabrah and Matsumoto
My Pure Land – by Hiro Sachiya
