Boston Old Path Sangha


 

We are a community of practitioners who come together for meditation and dharma sharing. Our practice is inspired by the teachings of zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as by other teachers within and outside the Buddhist tradition. Newcomers are always welcome. We meet every Monday from 2-3:30pm. Please plan to arrive ten minutes early so you can take care of your belongings and be ready to meditate at 2p.m. When we enter the meditation room, it is helpful to take a few cleansing breaths and say to ourselves: “letting go of my plans and worries, i have arrived in the here and now. i am home.” Usually the first thirty to forty-five minutes will be silent meditation (sit and walk), followed by dharma reading and sharing. If you need to arrive late or leave early, please do so with quiet gentle steps. open and close doors with utmost care and attention. There is no charge for the group. however, dana or donation given freely in any amount is most appreciated. “My joy is like spring, so warm it makes flowers bloom in all walks of life.” - tnh
