Join us for a meditation and dharma talk, to be presented tonight by Subhana Barzaghi. Following the night's meditation, Subhana will present a short talk on the theme of Awakening your Green Buddha Mind. This will be followed by a question and answer session on the night's theme.
The Bluegum Sangha's dharma talk series provides a secular environment to hear Buddhist teachings. At their core, these teachings aim to help guide our lives towards liberation from dukkha (unsatisfactoriness).
Awakening your Green Buddha Mind
Now more than ever before we need a genuine greening of the mind. We are facing climate change and an environmental crisis that affects all beings. This requires an inner and outer transformation to meet the challenges of our time. To hear the earth’s cry, is to realise our inter-connectedness, to realise there is no separation between our subjectivity and the dark rich earth. The green Buddha mind is a consciousness that recognises it’s own seamless totality with all beings. This understanding informs and changes our sense of guardianship and responsibility to this precious green planet of ours.
