This evening is the second in a series we are doing on Great Buddhist Teachers of the Past. Tonight there will be two short presentations followed by meditation.

Chris will talk about Hui Neng (638-713). He was a poor illiterate woodcutter who became 6th patriach of Ch’an Buddhism. The Platform Sutra includes his biography and his key teachings. Hui Neng was key to the establishment of Ch'an Buddhism in China.

Don will tell us about Santideva (8th C), who was an Indian Buddhist scholar based at Nalanda university. Santideva is the author of the Bodhicaryavatara (the Bodhisattva's way of life) which is the basis of our 7-fold Puja.

“May I be a protector for those without protection, a guide for travellers and a boat, a bridge and a ship for those who wish to cross over”.

Each evening is stand alone, even when it is part of a series. The evening begins with a short talk on an aspect of Buddhism with opportunity for questions and discussion; then a tea break; followed by a period of meditation.
