Experiencing the Dharma for Yourself
A One Day Retreat
Saturday, November 16, 2019
led by Bhikkhu Jayasara (Bhante J.) of the Bhavana Society
The Buddha’s method of teaching was to give a discourse (teaching), have the listeners reflect on it and then have them experience it for themselves to see if it is true for them. How can you experience the dharma (teachings) to see if it is true for you? In this one-day retreat, Bhante J will lead us in exploring how we can develop what is called appropriate attention, the ability to question and test one’s beliefs in an appropriate way.
Bhikkhu Jayasara, or Bhante J, is an American Buddhist Monastic of the Theravada tradition who resides at Bhavana Society of West Virginia with his preceptor Bhante Gunaratana. He has been a meditation practitioner for nearly 15 years, a Buddhist for over a decade, and in 2014, at the age of 36, he left lay life behind a to become a monastic. He now shares teaching duties for retreats at Bhavana Society and, when invited, travels the country to share the Dhamma with those who wish to listen.
