Talk, guided meditation and Q&A with Ajahn Gavesako

On Saturday the 9th of November, Ajahn Gavesako will be visiting Cambridge to lead a talk and meditation session.

The topic of the session is “Buddhist way of life and contentment with limited resources”. Ajahn Gavesako will discuss how we can use Buddhist teachings to achieve happiness while protecting the environment around us. He will also talk about investigating one’s own mind to live more skilfully, and give an introduction to the monastic lifestyle of Buddhist monks, which is based on renunciation and in harmony with the environment.

Ajahn Gavesako is a senior Buddhist monk and an excellent teacher from Chithurst Buddhist Monastery, which is one of the major Western monasteries in the Thai forest tradition. This will be an excellent chance to learn from an experienced forest monk and also ask any questions you may have about Buddhism, meditation and life in general.

This event is free and open to all. We hope to see many of you there.
