鈽革笍The River Ganges. At Rajagaha, in the Bamboo Grove , the Squirrel Sanctuary, a certain Brahmin approached the Blessed One and exchanged greetings with him. When they had concluded their greetings and cordial talk, he sat down to one side and asked him: "Master Gotama, how many eons have elapsed and gone by? #innerpeace #innerpeacegroupmeditation #goingtothetemple #teachingsofthebuddha #teachingsofbuddha
Without Discoverable Beginning: Grass and Sticks. 鈽革笍The Blessed One said this: "Monks, this samsara is without discoverable beginning. A first point is not discerned of beings roaming and wandering on hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving." #innerpeace #innerpeacegroupmeditation #goingtothetemple #goingwithin #blessedone #teachingsofbuddha #teachingsofthebuddha #samsara #ignorance

Homage to Amitabha Buddha! 鈽革笍 Amitabha Buddha is not far from anyone. His Land of Purity is described as being far away to the west but it is, also within the minds of those who earnestly wish to be born there... To those who have faith, He offers the opportunity to to become one with Him. When Dad is bringing you to the Temple: 鈽革笍Here, we are Celebrating His fifth week since His passing, while at the temple daily prayers and offerings are being done all throughout the 49 days during the bardo of transformation. 鈽革笍Take a look at the beautiful bright Light on His picture!... -------Come join us this coming Sunday at 10:30am for the final Requiem, Forty Nine Days Ceremony, followed by a Community brunch.

鈽革笍"Suppose, monks, a man wandering through a forest would see an ancient path, an ancient road traveled upon by people in the past. He would follow it and would see an ancient city, an ancient capital that has been inhabited by people in the past, with parks, groves, ponds and ramparts, a delightful place."鈽革笍 The Bringer of Light. #innerpeace #innerpeacegroupmeditation #innerpeacewalk #goingtothetemple #buddhism #teachingsofbuddha #teachingsofthebuddha #mindfulwalk
It is because of the mystery of Birth, Old Age and Death that Buddhas arise in the world. There is no realm of existence in which these realities do not exist and it is the sole purpose of the Buddha's enlightenment to penetrate into their root causes. 鈽革笍Vulture Peak also known as Eagle Peak, north of Rajagriha, now Rajgir, the capital of Magadha in ancient India.鈽革笍 #innerpeace #innerpeacegroupmeditation #goingtothetemple #goingwithin #buddhism #buddhas #buddhasenlightenment #teachingsofthebuddha #teachingsofbuddha #birth #oldage #death #pilgrimagetoindia #beautifulindia #vulturepeak #eaglepeak
馃尮All Kids are sweet and precious! They often "know" more than what we are ready to hear coming from a child's perspective. So we realize that it is not coming from the intellectual knowing but rather coming from a different source and these Little Gold Nuggets are no exception: pure light and love. Wonderful to be with you again, Friends! Until next time... with Metta and blessings! #buddhist #buddhisttemple #buddhisttempleinfrederick #goingtothetemple #meditation #meditationclasses #goingwithin #innerpeacewalk #firstfrederickpeacewalk #innerpeace #innerpeacegroupmeditation #heart #minfulness #mind #mindtomind #mindischief #healing #teachingsofthebuddha #teachingsofbuddha #recovery #addiction #frederickcounty #frederickmaryland #frederickcountymaryland

Last week was very special: was honored to be given the opportunity to meet with these young minds and present them with some understanding on Buddhism and how to apply it now in their lives. 鈽革笍"Wherever the Buddha's teachings have flourished, Either cities or countryside's, 馃挮People will gain inconceivable benefits. The land and people will be enveloped in peace. 馃挮The sun and the moon will shine clear and bright. Wind and rain would appear accordingly, and there will be no disasters. 馃挮Nations would be prosperous and there would be no use for soldiers and weapons." 鈽革笍The Buddha speaks of The Infinite Life Sutra鈽革笍 #innerpeace #innerpeacegroup #mindfulness #mindtomind #teachingsofbuddha #sharinghappiness #goingtothetemple #sundaykids #frederickcounty #frederickmaryland #frederickmd #frederickcountymaryland

Good Friday morning Friends馃専 鈽革笍All beings have the Buddha Nature within, Some remember It , some have forgotten It. No blame... 鈽革笍The purpose of the practice called Life is to see the Truth for ourselves, recognize where we are at the moment and draw the strength and peaceful force from within to be a better version of ourself: 鈽革笍no one is stuck to anything, to this body nor this mind. We are the makers of our own existence. 鈽革笍Inviting you to come explore and practice together in a warm, welcoming environment with our "Inner-Peace Meditation Group." We will slowly get to know and be familiar again with the bigger dimension laying dormant within. For more information on dates and times, call Su Co Bao Co: 240- 551 1923. Please, Share. Thank you. #innerpeace #innerpeacegroupmeditation #goingwithin #innerpeacewalk #recovery #addiction #frederickcounty #frederickmaryland #frederickmd #goingtothetemple #mindtomind #mindischief #dharmahall
Going to the temple .. deep spirituality and true faith. That's what I happily discover walking early in the morning in Ubud. Thank you Marco for sharing with me this precious moment of this magic island. 馃檹 Life is so ironic. It takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence, and absence to value presence. #asia #Indonesia #bali #ubud #goingtothetemple #templesdonations #templesprayers #hinduism #faith #gratitude #respect #sharingtime #spirituality

Dear Friends, Sending an invitation to the parents about our Kids Class every Sunday from 2:30pm to 3:30. We have a wonderful time learning, exploring together the teachings of Buddha, His Life and so much more... Featured here are some pictures of today's class, the session ends with a deep restorative relaxation! When body, mind and senses are bombarded daily, they have no time to relax. For a sound health and well-being, we need to set aside time everyday for this state of relaxation. The Kids love it and need it so much...馃檹 Looking forward to having you next week! Parents are always welcome to attend and benefit from a well deserved proper relaxation too... #goingtothetemple #sharinghappiness #kidsclasses #buddhaswayforkids

鈽革笍What is Meditation? It is a way of life based on universal truths revealed 2,500 years ago by the Buddha with His teachings valuable then, as they are today and will be in the future. It is a system of education for the mind, the body and spirit. Meditation is not a religion and can be practiced by Jews, Christians, Hindus and atheists alike. Meditation is union with all. 馃尮Join the "Inner-Peace Meditation Group" this week as we begin the Fall Program for a "7 Weeks Course" starting: Saturday, October 6th through November, 17th. Classes start at 9:00am until 10:30am. Must commit to the duration of the 7weeks. Registration are open now by calling the number, and for more information, you are invited to kindly call: 240- 551 1923. 鈽革笍May all be happy and live with ease! ~~Metta #innerpeacegroupmeditation #innerpeace #innerpeacewalk #mindtomind #openheart #healing #sharinghappiness #messageofpeace #teachingsofthebuddha #universalmessage #communitystrong #recovery #goingtothetemple
Something I remember reading years ago is that most temples for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have angels that face East. If you know you鈥檙e scriptures you might remember that East is the direction Jesus is told to be seen in when he comes back. I remember telling my oldest this awhile back. Recently we drove by and he asked which way he was facing and I said I don鈥檛 know. As soon as we figured it out he said that鈥檚 the way Jesus will come back and brought it up again when we were at the temple today. It hit me powerfully when I realized that he is literally keeping watch for our Savior to return. They remember. #goingtothetemple #underconstruction #iamchristian

Homage to Shakyamuni Buddha! Homage to Avalokiteshvara Boddhisatva! Recognizing once more in this Sunday morning, these amazing youths for their selfless actions, complete devotion and inspiring steadfast energy during the preparation period of the Summer Community Festival: ~many not present today~. So after service, the Dharma talk was about: "When our actions, speech and thoughts are generated from the basis of our heart." #xaloitemple #xaloitempleMD #innerpeacegroupmeditation #goingtothetemple #teachingsofthebuddha #selflessness #joyofvolunteering #givingback #makingyourselfavailable #plantingseedsforthefuture #karma

Beautiful Monday morning with our Friends from CLI, Frederick. 馃専The group and the Team Leader spent time in the Dharma Hall by themselves first. The asked to go inside today and truly enjoyed their visit. I allowed enough time for them to explore the Hall and take it "all in." 馃専When Su Co entered the room, the Friends we're sitting on the cushions with the most peaceful and content smiles. One of the young lady shared that when she heard the Awakening Bells it made her " feel happy inside and feel very, very good." Another gentleman added, that he "enjoyed the silence and quiet" permeating in the room. 馃専We learn so much together today and we all look forward to continuing our sitting practice until we meet again next time. 鈽革笍With metta and blessings! #communitystrong #goingtothetemple #goingwithin #xaloimeditationgroup #xaloimeditation

The best place to find peace. The best place to feel safe. The best place to serve. The best place to feel worthy. The best place to feel connected to the past. The best place to find answers to life's questions. The best place to talk to Heavenly Father. The best place to learn forgiveness. The ultimate place to feel love. 鉂わ笍. . . . . So thankful I spent time here last night. It was just what I needed. My life is a constant Battle of faith, patience, perseverance and sacrifice. . . . I haven't spent as much time in the Temple as I have needed over the years. Since this March I have spent consistent time here. Don't know why it took me so long to become dedicated to being in this place. #newbeginnings #startinganew #goingtothetemple #houseofthelord #whereicanturnforpeace #comejoinme #serenity
