The 40 Tenets of Plum Village with Thay Phap Luu (Class #15)
July 28 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDTFree
Welcome to a weekly class from Deer Park Monastery on the topic “The 40 Tenets of Plum Village“. This class will take place live on Wednesday nights and will be available to watch on-demand afterwards on our YouTube channel.
In tonight’s class Thay Phap Luu will discuss the 15th tenet: “The awareness of suffering helps us recognize the existing conditions of happiness and also helps prevent the creation of wrong actions and the planting of negative seeds that will bring about suffering.”
This class is based on a book written by our teacher called “Làng Mai nhìn núi Thứu” or “Plum Village Looks at Vulture’s Peak” (an English translation is currently in progress but not yet available). The book describes the essential characteristics of Plum Village practice and teachings.
