Special Events at the Meditation Place
Buddhist Studies Seminar
Saturday, May 20th, 1 to 3:30 pm
Ben Connelly will present insights from his new book: Inside Vasubandhu's Yogacara. This book is a practical, down-to-earth guide to Vasubandhu's classic work "Thirty Verses of Consciousness Only" that can transform modern life and change how you see the world. Connelly's warm and wise voice unpacks and contextualizes its wisdom, showing us how we can apply its ancient insights to our own modern lives, to create a life of engaged peace, harmony, compassion, and joy. This is a great introduction to a philosophy, a master, and a work whose influence reverberates throughout modern Buddhism. Ben Connelly is a Soto Zen teacher and Dharma heir in the Katagiri lineage.
