Society of Friends

Starting in July, the Society of Friends of the Buddha will discuss selections from Jack Kornfield's Teachings of the Buddha, (Revised and Expanded edition) pictured above. It's published by Shambhala.

You can purchase this book from Many Rivers Books and Tea and also from the Spirit Rock Bookstore.

(Please note: There's another version of this book—same author and title—that is smaller and has a red cover, the Pocket edition. This red non-revised and unexpanded version is NOT the version we will use.)

Jack Kornfield ..hmmm After The Ecstasy, The Laundry ....I bought that book hmmmm perhaps close to 10 years ago. I haven't read it for ages ....perhaps I might again now.

And G'day Dan ...I hope you are well.

Hi SL—

I am well...just started *summer* vacation here in California. Actually, I've got a sore shoulder from moving a piano, but hopefully will feel better soon.

Hi, SF,

No, this post is for the benefit of friends who come over to my house for study.

It's a good book, though, even to read by yourself, assuming you're interested in Buddhism.

I have a couple of Kornfield's early books and enjoyed them...maybe not enjoy...or even read...more like a perusing, practicing, movement back and forth through pages.
