SHOW ME DHARMA (SMD) is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the study and practice of Insight Meditation available to Mid-Missouri. We support and encourage the development of community based upon Theravada Buddhist ideals, teachings and practice.
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.
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.
