The White House announced yesterday that President Obama is meeting with the Dalai Lama today. The Dalai Lama is the political, cultural and religious leader of Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism. The Washington Post is reporting the announcement brought immediate condemnation from China.
When guests visit Myosenji Buddhist Temple, located 10 miles northwest of the White House, they often express how confusing learning about Buddhism (especially on the internet) can be. It is a maze of jargon and lexicon unfamiliar to Americans and Westerners in general. That’s why Myosenji Temple offers a monthly introductory series, What is Buddhism?, where our Chief Priest, Rev. Murata, lectures and explains the basics of Buddhism, the historical roots of Buddhism, the differences among the sects of Buddhism and what the true practice of Buddhism is today.
If you are interested in learning the true practice of Buddhism, how it impacts your daily life, and how you can become a Buddhist today, join us on Sunday, February 23rd at 11 am for our next Introduction to Buddhism meeting.
