The premise of the “Let’s Talk Dharma” discussion group is to have a forum where people, long-standing members as well as newcomers to the temple, may ask questions and hold interactive discussions.
LTD has been running for four years and the numbers vary widely, from as few as three participants to up to 30 people, split into two groups – it all depends on the interest of the participants and their time availability.
This is the way the original Buddha, Sakyamuni, propagated the Dharma – by sharing and becoming involved with fellow seekers, one at a time.
We are following in his footsteps, as well as those of Rennyo Shonin, the Eighth Lord Abbot or Gomonshu, who popularized Jodo Shinshu in Japan by holding small gatherings in homes to discuss the Dharma.
Dennis is the lead facilitator but the discussions are participant-led. Sessions are sometimes based on suggested readings but mostly on participants’ questions.
