Advice/Ideas

Postby plwk » Mon Mar 22, 2010 2:35 pm

Seeking advice/ideas for the scenario below on how to facilitate a group discussion:

Topic: Dukkha
Style: Adult Group Interactive Discussion
Audience: Senior citizens and working adults (both Buddhists and non-Buddhists)
Maturity of the group: Ranging from 'no idea', 'I've heard it 100 times before' & 'short attention span'

Advice/Ideas? :namaste:
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Greetings,

Look up Access To Insight (under D for dukkha)

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7
