Our little Amidist group Belgium-Netherlands meets again 23-24 march in Vajra’s place, in La Colline éclairée, Belgium, close to Tournai, Leuze, Ath, Ronse, Geraardsbergen, Lessines, in the beautiful ‘Pays des collines’. Susthama is intending to join us again, so this is again a gift of the most precious kind.
There will be service, sharing, nembutsu, Dharma-talks …..
So happy, in 10 days our sangha comes together. We will be 8: Susthama, Annetta, Maïtrisimha, Floor, Tom, Diederik, Annemie and myself. As we all live rather far away from each other it is a challenge and a great joy to be able to meet.
The theme of the day is: narratives and stories that we grow up with, both the political ones and spiritual ones, and then thinking about how our own stories fit within a bigger one. So we will look at Amida’s story and how our stories fit in with it or not . Or we could look at Shakyamuni Buddha’s story as well.
As usual we shall have public evening-service on Saturday-evening 8 pm and public morning-service on Sunday morning 8 am.
If you are in the area: don’t hesitate to come over!
