Study Afternoon for Women Mitras – The Ghatikara Sutta

Saturday 23rd May 2020
2:30pm - 4:00pm

Led by Kalyanaprabha

‘In a certain place … the Blessed One smiled’.

So begins the story which becomes a story within a story, a story told by the Buddha to his friend and companion, Ananda.

The characters in the Buddha’s story include a potter, a student, a King, and the potter’s ageing parents.

What does the Ghatikara Sutta have to tell us who live at such a different time and in such a different place?

Kalyanaprabha, who loves a good story, is going to re-tell it, staying closely to the original; followed by some reflections on its themes of friendship, lifestyle, and devotion.

After which there will be time for questions and discussion.

Meet on Zoom on Saturday, 23rd May, 2.30-4pm, beginning with a round of introductions and a short meditation.

For women Mitras and Order Members. Email Atulyamitra if you’d like to book on and haven’t already.
