2017 DBA 5 days Meditation Program feedback

E-mail Print

IMG 1676Thank you all for providing this opportunity to meditate and learn together at this retreat. The flowers were beautiful Kim, and as usual you help everywhere ---- giving paramita, plus the others too. Once again, Peiwhua, you had everything well organized. Thank you to Rocky for so generously providing the facility and resources for this retreat. David and Yang also a big thank you to you all too for translating so well. Also, thanks to the kitchen crew for providing good food and to the photographer for the great pictures.  Thank you also, to those many invisible hands who helped make this retreat a success. 

Of course, a big thank you to Sister Christine and Sister Connie for their kindness, their hard work, their loving interaction with everyone and working so hard teaching, facilitating the meditation and helping everyone there in many ways. 

I think the teachings were presented well and SC meeting afterwards with the English speaking group is very good. She is really the only visiting monastic who offers teachings/ interactions in English, and I know we all appreciate that effort and kindness. The translations Sunday and Monday were good - I listened to the last evening talk, although I was not there at all. It is good that Yang records these so others can learn too. 

As for the subject matter, while it was well presented and very interesting to me, it was later Buddhist Philosophy, which I find a bit different from the actual teachings of the historical Buddha. While I found it interesting, for me it does not really impact my practice too much. I think Chinese Mahayana Buddhism puts emphasis on different areas, and I think probably this teaching from the Consciousness only school fits in well with that Buddhist understanding. 

However, that being said, it was interesting to learn, as I enjoy learning everywhere.

I hope Sister Christine continues to teach dharma at DBA, as she is knowledgeable, and she is very caring about her students. 

Thanks again to everyone for their support and involvement and work to make this meditation retreat a success. Sister Christine and Sister Connie are important teachers at DBA - a big bow to them.
