Saturday, Dec 6, 2014: Potluck Dinner & Movie

On Saturday, Dec 6, we will have a potluck dinner at LSLK starting at 7:00 pm,
followed by our third movie night at LSLK starting at 8:00 pm!

We will watch For the Benefit of All Beings: The Extraordinary
Life of His Eminence Garchen Triptrul Rinpoche

Everyone’s welcome!

Olga and I will contribute two pizzas and cheese sticks from Papa Johns and a bottle of Pepsi. Hopefully, Angelia will again bring tasty gluten-free brownies. If you can bring other things to drink or munch on, please do!

If you would like to bring more food, that’s fine. Mostly, we need everyone who attends to consider donating $5 or more to LSLK (only if you can). We will be happy to see you at LSLK at any time if you can make it. But, if you can afford it, we suggest a donation of $5.00 or more to LSLK for movie night. There’s a box in the shrine room and a link for PayPal near the top right corner of the website Please be generous toward LSLK!

Location: Losel Shedrup Ling of Knoxville
5415-F Kingston Pike in the Bearden area of Knoxville

Books for Newcomers to LSLK

LSLK would like get multiple copies of a few books so that people
who come to the center for the first time and are looking for
information on Buddhism can take them for free.

The books that we’d like to get are:

B. Alan Wallace’s “Tibetan Buddhism from the Ground Up”

Khenpo Samdup’s “Learning Buddhism”

Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Old Path White Clouds:
Walking in the Footsteps of the Buddha”

Getting just 10 copies of “Tibetan Buddhism from the Ground Up” and 10 copies of Khenpo Samdup’s “Learning Buddhism” would likely cost over $200. Obviously, it will be expensive to get multiple copies of these books, so they would have to be set aside exclusively for newcomers who come to LSLK looking for information on Buddhism.

If you would like to donate money for this purpose, please do. There would be much merit in doing so, and it would be a great benefit to others who are just starting to learn about Buddhism!
