Lecture & Discussion (on Zoom)
March 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us from 7:30pm to 9:00pm for our monthly Lecture and Discussion series. This month Professor David Carpenter from the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at Saint Joseph’s University will present “the Seven Factors of Awakening”.
The Seven Factors of Awakening” (sambojjhaṅga), are seven qualities of mind, taught by the Buddha, that can be used to describe either the qualities to be cultivated on the path to awakening or the qualities that characterize the awakened state itself. This talk will focus on how an understanding of these seven factors can be applied to the practice of meditation. The main sources will be the Aggi Sutta (Samyutta Nikaya 46.53) and the Visuddhimagga of Buddhaghosa, IV.51ff.”
