72nd Annual NW Buddhist Convention
Theme: "Compassion, Gratitude, Community"
We live in a time of unparalleled technology and connectivity. Most of us never have to look forward to day after day of backbreaking manual labor. Technology has taken care of that.
The world has never been “smaller.” The internet has taken care of that.
Yet, life still throws at us difficulties and challenges that at times seem insurmountable. We’ve all felt this and have wondered “How come I feel this way?” and “How do I get myself out of this?”Based on the primary Buddhist tenets of Impermanence and Interdependence, Shin Buddhist teachings provide clues/principals that when practiced in our daily lives help us navigate our ever-complex and challenging world.
Compassion…empathize with and resolve to help others
Gratitude…focus on the wonderfulness of today
Community…I am not alone…I can gain strength from others
