“The Importance of Silence”
A public talk by Aloka David Smith
April 1st 6.30pm
(free admission)

In whatever tradition it comes from the central aspiration of dharma practice is to discover stillness and silence of mind. From this point the created world can fall away to discover freedom and the end of suffering. Not easy to pull this off, but Buddhism offers the tools to cultivate this aspiration through its many practices. Finding the right tools is the challenge, but once found you will soon be on your way to liberation.

Aloka David Smith is the leader of a western non-sectarian traditional dharma practicing group who’s inspiration is Chan and Zen.
