Sangha Night: the Effect on the Receiver
It is in no doubt that we're living in unprecedented times.
One of the most startling features of this pandemic has been the incredible generosity it has generated among people, manifesting in ways both big and small.
In almost all Buddhist traditions, generosity (dana) is seen as being the fundamental virtue for a person to develop. But, how far does our imaginative connection with generosity extend? Do we really have an inspiring vision of how transformative generosity in practice can be?
The pandemic has given us the opportunity to explore this not just in theory, but in ways that can have an impact here and now. Our online program, for example, exists because of the generosity of class comers.
Over the coming weeks in Sangha Night then we will be exploring the principles of generosity and their power to transform.
This evening we are joined by Sanghanath who has spent many years working in fundraising for the charity Karuna so brings a huge wealth of first hand experience of the power of generosity.
Sangha night begins at 7.15pm on Zoom. If you do not already have Zoom already, you can download it for free: https://zoom.us/.
