We’re starting our Buddhist club ‘College Hill Buddhists for Peace’ gathering monthly from 5-6pm, again at the Page-Robinson 411 (right across the hallway from the Chaplains’ Office).
This semester we will hold these meetings bi-monthly on Fridays, and the exact dates are: 2/3, 2/17, 3/3, 3/17, 4/7, 4/21 and 5/5. The format will be informal and sometimes spontaneous in nature. Light snacks and water will be provided to facilitate our sharing and conversations.
College Hill Buddhists for Peace is an affiliate of our Office of the Chaplains and Religious Life, and promotes the practice of Nichiren Buddhism (a Mahayana school based on the Lotus Sutra) and the associated humanistic values of peace, culture and education. Our group comprises faculty, staff, undergraduate and students. We are associated with Soka Gakkai International (SGI), the world’s largest lay Buddhist organization and a nongovernmental organization (NGO) formally tied to the United Nations. SGI’s ultimate mission is to realize a world of lasting peace by awakening each person to his/her infinite potential we call Buddhahood. We regularly hold Buddhism introductory sessions for students, staff and faculty members of all identities or beliefs to learn about the wisdom of Buddhist teachings and how to apply such philosophy in our daily lives on campus. We also hold chanting sessions for all to experience the more spiritual aspect of the practice.
