On Thursday 2nd April the World Fellowship of Buddhists will hold a special Abhidhamma class in English with reknowned teacher Ajahn Sujin. She has been one of Thailand’s leading lights in the field of Buddhism, especially Abhidhamma, for over 50 years. Though retired these days we occasionally get the chance to meet and listen to her directly. In the past her talks were broadcast on numerous radio stations throughout Thailand, and served as a great inspiration to monks and laypeople alike. This is a very special occasion, and everyone who is able to make it on a Thursday afternoon is encouraged to attend.
Abhidhamma is the more metaphysical side of Buddhism, that generally requires more dedicated study than usual Dhamma talks. However, all who attend will be able to benefit from Ajahn Sujin’s lucid explanations of Dhamma, and gain an insight into how these deeper teachings can be brought to life and practise.
