Wow! What an experience of learning to find our inner self for our pack 996! The Scouts, parents, and siblings got enlightened at the Buddha gate monastery in Lafayette today! A great turn out of over 70 people including Scouts and their families. Scouts experienced practicing meditation (including calm and insight), mindfulness, the cultivation of wisdom, loving-kindness and compassion. Most importantly they learned to be mindful of their food helpings, cherish the blessing of food, and not to waste even a single grain of rice. They learned to respect each other’s beliefs and culture.
