Bhikkhu Bodhi Appreciation Society (on Facebook)

Postby retrofuturist » Thu Jan 01, 2009 1:29 am

Greetings,

A quick note to bring to your intention a recently formed Facebook group started by a Dhamma friend of mine...

The Bhikkhu Bodhi Appreciation Society
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=48054011290

A nice little fan page for those interested in the Dhamma as taught by the Buddha who have much regard for those such as Bhikkhu Bodhi who have meticulously translated the Buddha's words from Pali to English for the benefit of sentient beings so that they may practice in accordance with the instructions of their teacher.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Here is his monastery site; another source for his teachings:

A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

Please do, Peter!
It is a wonderful opportunity that you have living so close to Venerable.
He is truly remarkable and I am grateful to him for making the Buddha's teaching more accessible to me.

However inconsequential they may be, may Venerable Bodhi share in my merits.
Metta

is there a Thanissaro one?
I enjoy Bodhis writing but I prefer Thanisseros Speaking style


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

speaking of BB
can one go do retreats with him?

living as far as i am from the rest of america ANYWHERE is a trip, a long trip. pretty much like traveling to another country, so i cant just pop in and meet famous monks or whatever you would want to call Bodhi, or Thanisarro. but i wouldnt mind meeting them, meditating and listening to some talks.
