Notes and Events:

The Social Action Project, the socially engaged arm of our spiritual community, the Buddhist Faith Fellowship,  which is completely non-ideological and non-political and seeks practical engagement and solutions to the difficult local social and environment problems of the 21st century by using Buddhist principles as our guide for action.

Our members and friends are drawn into active engagement with the social and environmental issues of our times. We believe that humane and compassionate social action naturally unfolds as a response to the incessant suffering and folly in the world. Inspired by the Buddha’s teachings of the Bodhisattva way and the teachings of Shinran Shonin, we are compelled to work together in order to alleviate and transform this dukkha (suffering) into the substance of love, wisdom and peace. As our teaching expresses, "let’s transform bits of rubble into gold."

Spiritual Director: Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua  
Notes and Events:

Buddhist Canon

      In order to establish Buddhism firmly in China, scriptures were translated from Sanskrit into Chinese.

Countless people were involved in this task. National Master Kumarajiva (5th century) headed a team of over 800 in a decade-long translation project of the Tripitaka (Buddhist Canon). Because of this work, nearly the entire Buddhist Canon of over a thousand texts exists today in Chinese.

      Now as Buddhism is being planted in Western soil, the same translation work is being done form Chinese into English. The Buddhist Text Translation Society (BTTS) founded by Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua in 1970, is working toward this goal with committees headed by Bhikshus (monks) and Bhikshunis (nuns) devoted to translation, revision, editing and certification of the entire Tripitaka.

Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua (1918 – 1995)

At first glance, he looked and sounded like any other Chinese immigrant in San Francisco in the 1960s. His humble manner belied his position as the 45th Buddhist patriarch in direct lineage from Shakyamuni Buddha.

Master Hua was born in 1918 near Manchuria, China into a family of frugal farmers. He learned to read at 15, and after his mother’s death at 19, he became a monk. He meditated by his mother’s grave for three years and practiced other austerities before receiving full ordination.

At Nan Hua Monastery in Canton, Master Hua received the mind-to-mind transmission of the Patriarchs Master Hsu Yun, making him a Patriarch in direct lineage with Bodhidharma, the last patriarch of India, and Hui Neng, the first patriarch of Zen. With the arrival of the communists on the Chinese mainland, the Master went to Hong Kong to promote orthodox Buddhism. In 1962, he brought monastic, Mahayana Buddhism to America. He founded the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, the International Translation Institute, and over 20 other monasteries and temples all over the globe, with the goal of spreading Buddhism worldwide.

Notes and Events:

As a general introduction to our meditation practice, the purpose is to develop focused clarity in our everyday lives by training the muscle of awareness and presentness in formal meditation sessions. Our style of practice is with eyes open, accepting of and sensitivity to our five senses, using the breath to focus us back intot the present moment, and a gentle relationship with thinking and an accepting relationship to thoughts. While this might seem to be a focus on personal development, our ultimate objective is to be better able to help and heal the societies we find ourselves in: home, friends, work and volunteering.

Meditation every second Sunday open to the public at the auditorium of Brentwood Co-op. From 9:30 to 1:30 (come and leave at any time). If this is your first time joining us for meditation, please use the contact information below for a brief orientation. The general schedule for these sessions is
