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)

http://www.accesstoinsight.org/index-subject.html#d

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)
