Buddhist Meditation Center Tour and Potluck

On April 24th, Eight UUCLC members toured the Mahāsatipaṭṭhāna Meditation Center Đại Niệm Xứ Thiền Viện located in Leesburg, Fl.  Activities included a tour of the Holy Gardens with explanations of the meaning and significance of Buddha’s representation in the different statues; a visit to Meditation Center Island to see the complex; experience a mindfulness meditation led by our monk guide; and a potluck lunch shared with the monks and nuns.  Our guide educated us regarding some of the Buddhist practices, kindly demonstrated chanting, and answered our many questions.
The center is open daily 8am to 5pm. Visitors are welcome.  Weekend retreats are held monthly. 10 day retreats are offered three times per year.  If you would like further information please visit their website. https://www.dainiemxutv.org/index.php/en/homepage
