2015 DBA 5-day Meditation program

E-mail Print

5 days medi-engThe Dallas Buddhist Association (DBA) will have its annual 5-day Meditation program with an orientation the night before, starting May 20 (from 7:30pm) and continuing through May 25, 2015. The program will be held at 501 Apollo Road, Richardson, Texas 75081. As in the past, the monastics from Fa Yun Prajna Monastery in New Mexico will guide the meditation program and give the Dharma talk.

Venerable Chi Yueh has many years of empirical meditation experience and a wealth of experience in Buddhist teachings. During the last two years, she led the Samatha/Vipassana Insight meditation at DBA, and she and the assistant nuns are highly regarded by meditators. Under her careful guidance in the "Person empty" and "Phenomenon empty" teachings guide, the meditators were taught to see their own mind and how to reduce distraction in the mind and gain stability in the practice.

In order to schedule the meditation program to fit every person’s schedule, we will divide everyday’s program into 3 periods: morning (8am – 11am), afternoon (2pm -5pm) and evening (6:30pm – 8:30pm). We encourage you to attend all three for the entire duration of the program. For those who are unable to attend the complete program, please look at the attached program schedule for available dates and time period that work for you.

 People’s thought & experience after attending the 5-day Meditation program

(1) One person’s thought:

“It says that there’s 84,000 practice ways in Buddha’s teaching. But all of them center around “concentration” & “insight”, these two cultivations. “Concentration” is to stop distracted thought in our mind, and “insight” is to gain wisdom by analyzing nature of observed object. They each has many different methods. <please click this link for more articles>

5 Days Meditation News

E-mail Print

DBA meditation program (5/28-6/2) has been successfully concluded. In five days of intensive training, we learned a lot. New students have a preliminary understanding on meditation, while previouse attenders gained more experiences. The venerable Zhi Yue is from the Fa Yun Monastery in New Mexico. She not only has many years of empirical meditation experience, but also has a wealth of experience in Buddhist teaching. Under the careful guidance of her in "I empty", "Dhama empty" teachings guide, students diligently practice meditation and had varying degrees of breakthrough.

The five days program is too short, the students are expected to meet again in next year!
