A Memorial Service for Jan Colbert

Dear Friends,

I found out earlier this evening that there will be a memorial service for Jan Colbert TOMORROW in the Palmer Room of the Journalism School (U of Missouri).  The service begins at 4pm, Monday, 11/28/16.

Jan was devoted to Show Me Dharma, and participated on the board until her health declined last year. She is dearly missed by many.

How to request for Metta

REQUEST FOR METTA

Metta is a Pali word that means “lovingkindness”. There is a tradition of “sending metta” to yourself or other creatures; it is a way of praying for their well-being, using words like these:

■ May this being be free from danger
■ May this being be free from mental suffering
■ May this being be free from physical suffering
■ May this being live with ease

You may use the Metta FORM to create a request for metta.
You can ask a teacher to send metta to a specific person, a group of people, an animal/animals, or to all sentient beings.
