The "Heart Sutra" is one of the most famous and revered of the Buddha's teachings. This profound teaching on Emptiness is revealed through a dialogue between two of the Buddha's main disciples, Avalokiteshvara and Shariputra. It contains the very essence of all the Buddha's teachings. By understanding the meaning of Emptiness, or how things actually exist in our world, instead of how we usually perceive them, we can learn to let go of harmful, negative emotions and cultivate our marvelous potential for clarity and contentment of mind and deepen our compassion as well as the many other qualities that are innate within us. Reciting the "Heart Sutra" is often recommended by the lamas for gaining wisdom and removing obstacles in our lives. The retreat will be lead by Venerable Robina. Hailing from Australia, she has been an ordained Buddhist nun since the 1970's. She has served as the Editorial Director of Wisdom Publications and "Mandala Magazine" and currently teaches Buddhism around the world. The retreat begins at 4pm on January 11 and ends at 1:30 on January 18

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
