Below is an announcement from Dharma Meditation Community at Rutgers
(DMCR), a Rutgers GSO.
--------------------------------------------------
Dear Friends,

This semester a new GSO called "Dharma Meditation Community at Rutgers
(DMCR)" has been started. It provides the opportunity to learn about Buddha
Dharma and practice meditation, which basically follows the teaching of
Chan (禪) Buddhism. This is a culturally diverse group that welcomes the
curious, beginners, and experienced practitioners. We deeply value the role
of friendship and community in supporting a thoughtful spiritual path of
wisdom and compassion.

The basic concept of meditation is about relaxation and concentration.
Different styles of meditation technique include sitting, walking, and
eating, which DMCR teaches you how to incorporate into your daily life.
Through meditation, we can practice mindfulness and learn to be conscious
of our internal thoughts and external surroundings. All these skills train
our mind to be more mindful and aware. We hold meditation workshops, Dharma
discussion/sharing, and study group monthly, along with special events like
one-day retreat throughout the semester. We also cooperate with Rutgers
Graduate Student Association (GSA) in weekly meditation practice.

This Sunday (March 25th) DMCR will hold another one-day retreat led by an
American Fashi from Dharma Drum Mountain Retreat Center. The detail
information is on the poster.

Please see our event calendar and feel free to contact us for details. Our
email is dmcrutgers@(protected)
Meditation Community at Rutgers".

Thank you & have a wonderful day!

DMCR
