When I came to BZC some years ago, I was struck that Sojun Roshi was carefully teaching basic dharma as found in the Pali Suttas. Suzuki Roshi suggested, “…we have Hinayana practice with Mahayana spirit.”
In late August and September I will offer a four-session class, studying the the Five Hindrances, and Seven Factors of Enlightenment which serve as practices to transform our hindrances.
Class dates are Thursdays—August 25th, September 1st, 15th, and 22nd from 7:15 to 8:45pm in the BZC Community Room. Study materials will be available in advance of the class, which will be held in symposium style. Sign up on the main bulletin board. Suggested fee is $40 for the class.
