    Dharma Discussion led by Chris Wenger

     A Christmas Carol is a classic tale of one man's discovery of basic goodness, which breaks through his shell of self-protective isolation and results in the release of boundless generosity and warmth. In order to make that journey, however, Ebenezer Scrooge must acknowledge his own loneliness and vulnerability, identify with the pain and poignancy of human suffering in the society of his time, and face the inevitability of his own mortality. The story of Scrooge's transformation thus invites us to contemplate profound dharmic themes such as impermanence and death, karma, and the preciousness of human life.

    All sentient beings (especially small ones) are welcome and warmly invited, but the presentation and discussion are especially recommended for anyone who is interested in the bodhisattva path.
