James Kershner, founder of the Cape Sangha, will present a slideshow and talk about his recent pilgrimage “In the Footsteps of the Buddha” 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2, at Unity on Cape Cod, 147 Walton Ave, Hyannis, MA 02601.
The talk will be approximately one hour with time for questions and answers. Those who are interested in experiencing Buddhist practice may stay for the regular meeting of the Cape Sangha from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
Kershner will talk about the life of the Buddha while showing photographs taken during his recent two-week visit to northern India and southern Nepal. He was part of a pilgrimage group of 30 Buddhist practitioners, including several monks and nuns. It was led by Dharma Teacher Shantum Seth, a native of Delhi who has been taking groups to see important locations in the life of the Buddha, who lived 2,600 years ago in what is now India.
Kershner, a resident of Barnstable, was ordained by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh as a member of the Order of Interbeing in 2002.
Jesus said of his teachings: “I have said these things to you that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11) Whatever the circumstances of my life, I can choose joy, the joy that comes from knowing that we have been brought a new understanding of life, a new way of loving one another. Joy does not come from judging outer circumstances. Joy does not come from anywhere outside ourselves. Joy always comes from within our own heart and mind.
