For March, we choose Dipa Ma: The Life and Legacy of a Buddhist Master by Amy Schmidt for our book club reading.
This Dipa Ma biography is about one of the few women in her generation to devote herself entirely to the pursuit of meditation also includes Dipa Ma's spiritual teachings, which have made her a major figure in contemporary Buddhism.
We will read and discuss the life story and spiritual teachings of Dipa Ma, a major figure in contemporary Buddhism. She was the teacher of such well-respected western Buddhists as Jack Kornfield, Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, Alice Walker and Sylvia Boorstein, among others. An accomplished yogi, she was an inspired teacher and a devoted mother and grandmother. A woman who found great freedom through profound levels of insight and one who exemplified in her every action immense kindness, generosity, and mindfulness.
The March book club will be held safely outdoors on March 6th from 10:30-11:45 a.m. pacific time. Zoom access will be provided for those who cannot attend in person. Please join our community to receive emails with details of this and future meeting. REGISTER TODAY!
