Flash News Special No. 7 – Dana: giving, considered as the first paramita
Tenboring Flash News Special Number 7 – 21 June 2020
To the members of Tenborin … hello everyone!
This newsletter, whose topic is the dana paramita puts an end to the teachings I have been doing during these months of lockdown, in order to try to continue and deepen the practice of the Way of the Buddha.
The 6th paramita is wisdom ; the Great Wisdom !
This is going to be approached as a teisho, and form the basis of kusen and teachings during the July session ; then you will all receive these teachings by mail.
Dana is giving
At the end of the lockdown when poor economic conditions have been the lot for all, many companies and associations are asking for financial support from their members. Of course you are welcome to help the Tenborin association and the zen Centre of Lanau with a donation, and we would be so grateful !
But the best help is to come and practise in Lanau to reinforce the practice and relatinoships with all the members of the sangha ; no doubt we’ll be able to share great summer sesshins in the most favorable conditions.
See you soon then
With my best regards and friendship
