Below is a Press Release for the Middle Way Buddhist Association
Pinellas Park, Florida, April 17, 2007.
The Middle Way Buddhist Association has classes in both Chinese and English!
The Middle Way Buddhist Association has Dharma classes in both Chinese and English! We also have activities and a class for children.
Buddhism welcomes everyone. Having people from different cultures and backgrounds gives our group a diverse atmosphere. And being a new group, it is a good place to meet new people who are enthusiastic about exploring Buddhist ideas and discussing philosophy in general.
Our first meeting had thirty people in attendance with many coming from Sarasota and beyond. Our discussions are on an introductory level but include serious questions of a wide ranging nature. Our meetings begin with group meditation at 9:30 AM the third Saturday of each month.
The discussions and enthusiasm carried over to the vegetarian lunch which followed the meeting. Eating good vegetarian food makes you feel better about yourself and other creatures in the world.
The Middle Way Buddhist Association encourages its members to get involved in unselfish and peaceful activities for the sake of loving-kindness.
The next meeting is on Saturday morning, September 15, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm and will be held at:
