Life of Buddha and History of Sangha

The Shambhala School of Buddhist Studies presents

“Life of Buddha and History of Sangha”

with Marni Lalonde

Tuesday evenings 8 pm to 9 pm (after sitting practice 7 pm to 8pm)

October 30th, November 6, 13, 20 & 27

With an intensive day, Saturday Nov. 24th

In this course we will study the life story of Shakyamuni Buddha and the evolution of the early Buddhist community of practitioners. We will also briefly survey the spread of the teachings through various cultures over the past 2500 years. This course can give us a greater appreciation for the unique transmission of buddhadharma to the West, in which we take part through our own study & practice.

Marni Lalonde is a senior practitioner and a student of the Sakyong, Mipham Rinpoche. She is a past Director of the Victoria Shambhala Meditation Centre. Marni will be teaching this program with the assistance of Silas Rosenblatt.
