    Yes, hopefully see you next week on 30th - and perhaps if possible members could let me know the day before if they are coming to the meeting and have a topic they'd particularly like to discuss.

    My own suggestion for a topic next week is "Friendship with others on the Path" and this article by Gil Fronsdal could be read as an introductory starter to the discussion.

    I made a suggestion in post #11 but is there something else you'd like to discuss?

    What about...
    "What is Zen Buddhism and how it compares to the thai forest tradition of Buddhism"

    Ok....we could try, but I don't think we've got any experts to be able to compare the two traditions with accuracy, as one is Mahayana and the other is Theravada.

    One would need to have regularly attended the live teachings as well as done group practice with both of them for a meaningful comparison. One can't really compare two different traditions properly just from books and stuff on the internet.

    In future I'd also like to request that any members who want to take part to let me know a few hours before the discussion start time if possible please, so that I'm not wasting time just hanging around staring at a screen waiting to see if anyone might be going to turn up for the video chat!

    I can then spend that time doing something else instead.

    Many thanks, and may all beings have peace & happiness.
