Hope to see you there.
Anyone who wants to sit in on or join in with the refuges and precepts at 7.00 is very welcome. If there is time we have a quick check in with how we are. A kind of connecting and arriving ready for the evening. A lovely thing I have come to realise over time.
The green buddha of the north in the blue night sky is Amoghasiddhi. The Buddha of unobstructed success or fearlessness. Amoghasiddhi has the quality of very refined energy which is not coarse or grasping at any outcome. He represents something of the quality we are trying to develop in meditation. Being present without being over willful; being present without getting lost in stories and preferences. The other Buddhas - who knows we all have different experiences of our bodies in deep meditation so have confidence that what emerges and arises and then passes. Interesting, enjoyable even but nothing to get too involved with.
