A Dharma Teaching.
As I previously reported at my blog, I recently had the honor of being a guest speaker at the Southern California University Buddhist Association’s 2010 Vesak Day Celebration at the University of California-Irvine campus on May 8th.
The event is held each year to “commemorate, celebrate, and rejoice in the Buddhas birth, enlightenment, and nirvana.”
The title of my talk was “Benefit Beings!” I’m delighted to report that it was videotaped—by none other than our first graduate of the chaplaincy program at University of the West (where I serve on the faculty as coordinator of that program) and a past interviewee, Rev. Somya Malasri.
