Our June 6, 2015 Dana Dinner was another beautiful example of the great generosity of spirit in our sangha and in our community! Thank you Matt Branham for your partnership in organizing and promoting these dinners. Thank You Moira for all your Dana! Thank You Mayor Cooper for your ongoing support. Thank You Julie and all the staff of Lovin’ Oven for your graciousness and warm hospitality – and great food!! Thank you Bonnie Pariser, Myrna Smith, and everyone who contributed and participated in this wonderful event. I hope to see you all at our next Dana Diner! (November 24, 2015)
My Dhamma articles and talks are based on the Buddha's teachings (suttas) as preserved in the Sutta Pitaka, the second book of the Pali Canon. I have relied primarily on Thanissaro Bhikkhu’s excellent and insightful translation of the Pali generously made freely available at his website Dhammatalks.org, as well as the works of Nyanaponika Thera, John Ireland, Maurice Walsh, Hellmuth Hecker, and Sister Khema, among others, as preserved at Access To Insight.
Also, I have found Bhikkhu Bodhi's translations from Wisdom Publications Pali Canon Anthologies to be most informative and an excellent resource.
I have made contextual edits to the suttas from these sources for further clarity, to modernize language, to minimize repetition, and maintain relevance to Dependent Origination and Four Noble Truths.
