Riding Well into 2021: Chariots in the Buddhist Teachings – January 24

What do responsive speech, not-self, and living an awakened life have in common?

They are all associated with chariot similes in the Pali Canon. As we ride forth into 2021, it’s a good time to consider the vehicle of our practice — none other than our body, speech, and mind. Indian chariots are elegant, spacious, beautiful, and practical all at once.

In this half-day, we will practice with these themes through meditation, teachings, and discussion. Suitable for anyone seeking a new-year tune-up.
