Notes and Events:

Bodhisattva Buddhism as practiced by Inner Peace Buddhist Center (IPBC), is based on the teachings of the Buddha who lived approximately 2500 years ago. Our primary goal is to awaken to the present moment and to serve others. We aspire to live by asking the question, “What will create the most good and ease the most suffering?”  We practice meditation and compassionate awareness to become more fully present and to see ourselves and the world around us more clearly.  Our meditation practice includes concentration, natural awareness, and positive imagery and can be practiced while sitting (no special posture required), standing, eating, walking or even sleeping. We also focus on Three Jewels, The Four Noble Truths and the Five Precepts.  Bodhisattva Buddhism is more about transforming our behavior than it is simply believing some set of statements. Through these practices, we have experienced that spontaneous, pro-active Bodhisattva Buddhism will naturally arise.

Notes and Events:

At this time, our Community is a practice group with no affiliated teachers; we draw teachings in through readings and audio recordings, and encourage members to attend retreats and dharma talks at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and various other places where teachings are being offered by recognized teachers of the dharma.

At our weekly Tuesday evening sitting meditation practice, both experienced meditators and persons new to meditation are warmly welcome.  We practice sitting meditation for 30 minutes. Depending on the week, we either read aloud for 20 - 25 minutes, or (on the second and fourth weeks), we listen to a recording of a dharma talk (roughly one hour long).   The readings and the recorded dharma talks are by various dharma teachers from the Insight and Theravada traditions, such as Joseph Goldstein, Larry Rosenberg, Ajahn Sumedho, and Sharon Salzberg.  We leave a few minutes after the reading/talk for brief discussion. 

For anyone not familiar with Insight Meditation (Vipassana meditation), optional brief instruction is provided at 7:10 PM before the Tuesday evening sitting. 

On the third Tuesday of each month, an addition 30 minute sitting period follows the dharma reading; participants are welcome to stay for this or leave quietly before it begins.

Please make an effort to arrive on time.  If you do arrive late, please enter quietly, find a seat (a cushion or chair), and join us in practice.

For those who have some meditation experience, possibly including some experience with intensive silent retreats, we also have First Sunday Extended Practice, a monthly half- day of silent sitting and walking meditation.  Please see the event pages for more information.

We look forward, in the future, to welcoming experienced teachers of the dharma to come and offer dharma talks.
