Sangha Day Puja
Tuesday 27th November 6.45pm
96 Halifax Street, Adelaide 5000
Do join us on Tuesday for an evening of meditation and ritual celebrating the creation of the first Sangha, or Buddhist Community.
Through chanting and recitation (in call and response), a Puja explores a series of devotional moods which lift the spirit and develop our emotional connection with our spiritual ideals. Communally we bring about an experience of beauty and celebrate the value of sharing the spiritual path with others.
All are welcome, no previous experience is necessary.
On Sangha Night next Tuesday 30th August, we will be taking our next steps beyond becoming incorporated and inviting people to share in creating a collective endeavour to move us more and more in the direction of a true sangha in the making.
Following our meditation, the second part of the evening will start with a pithy half hour talk by an Order member at the San Fransisco Buddhist Centre, about the individual, the group and the spiritual community. This will serve to remind us what we have been exploring over the winter about the true nature of sangha and the individual. It will also lay the foundation for Rich and Tash to share a vision for Adelaide Triratna growing into the future and invite each one of us to reflect on what we may be able to offer to the development of our sangha.
Bring along, in hard copy, your favourite photos of Adelaide Triratna events and activities from the past three years. We will rejoice together at the end of the evening with our Three-Fold Puja, as a celebration of sangha and Bhante Sangharakshita, the founder of our movement and Order, whose 91st birthday is 26th August.
