“Students of the Path” Online Sangha Turns 2 Years old

Our “Students of the Path” Discord Sangha turns 2 years old this weekend and we just celebrated with some chanting, guided meditation, and precepts.
We’ve gotten up to Majjhima Nikaya 66(yes starting from 1) in our Sunday Sutta class(6:30pm Eastern every Sunday) and continue to have lay persons discussions and various channels related to Dhamma.
We also mix and work in concert with other buddhist channels on discord, being part of the larger Buddhist community on the platform.
If you’d like to be a part of our world wide online sangha with multiple monastics, come join us via this link – https://discord.gg/YBAzGcV
it is free and the platform can be used via browser, phone app, or desktop app

Out of Seclusion & Dhamma Podcast in the works

Welcome to a new year everyone. Bhavana is now out of seclusion and the first retreat is coming up. It’s a fairly busy time for Bhavana and for me right now, but I wanted to announce a project I’ve been thinking about the past few months.

I kind of toyed with it a little in the past, but this year what I’d like to get going is a podcast, for now I’ll call it the “Students of the Path Podcast” and I believe I will continue with the “10 Minute Dhamma” series I began last year.

I think for the beginning I will be covering very basic information about Buddhism, as I would like this for sure to become something that has good outreach to everyone who may be interested in Dhamma, and I will branch out from there.

I’m not sure if I will be doing this video and audio, or just audio, but I would like to eventually also have guests on and make it into a real deal serial podcast, but for now it’s time to just start small.  In fact I’ve been procrastinating about it, which is why I wanted to make this announcement so it would give me the extra kick in the rear to devote some time to getting this started.

I have good feelings for Bhavana , and myself, this year, lets all try to make it a good one :).
