FMW Prayer Series: Buddhist Prayer

Saturday, June 26, 2021
3:00 pm4:30 pm

Buddhism is a religion / spiritual practice that does not include a theistic belief. The goal of practice and prayer is to free oneself and all sentient beings from the suffering (dukkha) of desires and aversions for the purpose of achieving release and enlightenment. Buddhists don't pray to a god(s) but offer loving friendliness, kindness (metta) or compassion to oneself and our fellow travelers in life.

Join us for a panel discussion of members from the St. Mark's Meditation Center, a sangha (spiritual community) of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington. Joe Izzo, a member of Friends Meeting of Washington and of IMCW will moderate the discussion about Buddhism and prayer with participant interaction and Q&A encouraged. We will end the session with an experience of offering metta for all.

Workshop presenter: Joseph Izzo,, cell 202-425-0496. Joe is a member of FMW. Please contact via e-mail to register your attendance by Thursday, June 24, 2021.
