Days of Mindfulness

Boston Old Path Sangha, along with the Mindfulness Practice Community of Greater Boston, holds a Day of Mindfulness periodically throughout the year.


Day of Mindfulness

Brothers Phap Tri and Phap Man

and Order of Interbeing member Lillian Fuchs

9:30am – 3:30pm

Saturday, November 10, 2018

Chua Vietnam
68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA

Our beloved teacher, Thay, once suggested that to balance the Statute of Liberty on the East Coast, there should be a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast. How can we who practice in the Plum Village Tradition each become response-able? Could we express our gratitude for Thay’s teachings by being response-able for our practice — for ourselves, our families, our community and for the world? Can we embody and apply the Mindfulness Trainings such that we are appropriate and ‘response-able’ when we speak? Can we stay tuned to our interior landscape and be response-able to outside conditions?

Brothers Phap Tri and Phap Man are Buddhist monks ordained in the Plum Village tradition.

Lillian Fuchs is an Order of Interbeing member.

The registration fee of $15 supports the temple. However no one is required to pay to attend any Day of Mindfulness. Checks should be made out to Temple Vietnam. In addition, a Dana basket will be available for our teachers so they can continue to share the dharma with a suggested dana of $20. Please dress warmly, especially with socks and slippers, and wear comfortable clothes. Kindly bring a vegetarian bag lunch, your own cup and a napkin. Tea will be available.

Temple Vietnam is one mile from Forest Hills MBTA and the Arborway. You can reach it via the Arborway to Washington Street or via Forest Hills Orange Line MBTA. Search “68 Bradeen Street, Roslindale, MA 02131” in your navigation. Drive inside the gate for plenty of parking or park at end of the street.
