Have fun with other sangha members, and learn something, too! We’ll spend an evening playing “Rebirth,” a board game created by Sakya Pandita which teaches the cycles of birth and rebirth, as well as the various states of existence. Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho Sakya will open the evening with a talk explaining the Buddhist beliefs taught by the game, such as reincarnation, karma, and the motivations for a good rebirth. We’ll then play the game, in which no one wins, no one loses! For people who aren’t interested in board games but would still like to socialize, a jigsaw puzzle of the Wheel of Life (the fresco at the back of the Shrine Room) will be available for group construction. If you’d like something a little more interactive and competitive, please bring your mah jong game and get ready to play!
Beverages will be served. Please bring along a snack to share.
