Do you know the Way?

We're looking forward to seeing you at the next meeting of Hertford Buddhist Sangha, downstairs at 33 The Vaults, in The Wash, Hertford on Tuesdays at 7.15pm. It's opposite the 'Six Templars' Weatherspoons pub. If you don't know the way in, you need to go down the passage at the side of The Lounge cafe, through the doors of no.33 and down the stairs.

We offer two sessions in the evening, at 7.15pm and 8.15pm as we have found that some can't come early and some can only come late ! In the first session we will practice the Mindfulness of Breathing and, in the second, the Development of Loving Kindness. Come to one or both, we will be pleased to see you. If you arrive a bit late for a session, just quietly come in and join us. We meet every Tuesday evening at the Vaults, with the exception of the main school holidays. All sessions are suitable for beginners and you don't need to be a Buddhist to participate.

Over the last few months we have been looking at the Threefold Path - that's the path of Ethics, Meditation and Wisdom. We have read about and discussed Buddhist Ethics - the 5 Precepts and the 5 Dharmas. Next Tuesday, we will be practising meditation and, for our discussion topic, looking at the second stage of the Threefold Path, Meditation. In particular, we will be looking at setting up the conditions for meditation and, in weeks to come, practising different kinds of meditation.

Hope to see you on Tuesday evenings then!
