Dear Thay, dear Sangha,
Please join us this Sunday from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m., either in person or by Zoom. We’ll be meeting at the Albuquerque Zen Center, 2300 Garfield Ave. SE.
Thay’s book “Happiness—Essential Mindful Practices” is a real treasure. It’s like a little handbook you can keep by your side so you can explore the 50 practices that Thay outlines for us. It gives us 50 practices to help us maintain and return to mindfulness throughout the day. Take a look at the introduction and the first few chapters—essential teachings for moving through this world mindfully. Explore some of the other chapters— amazing practices we can use wherever we are, no matter what we are doing. There are so many distractions trying to keep us from our mindfulness but this amazing book holds the key to help liberate us from anxiety, fear and anger and return to the present moment.
For security, Zoom links are not posted on the website, but are available on request.

For now the weekly announcements are also being posted on this website.
To maintain an atmosphere of reverence and tranquility in the Zendo we’ll be observing 10 minutes of Noble Silence before each meeting.
Dana (generosity) is one of the virtues cultivated in Buddhism. It is customary to offer Dana in appreciation for the benefits received and to support the Sangha. Dana can be financial and it can also be in other forms such as helping with setup or breakdown of meetings and days of mindfulness.
