Online: Metaphors of Mindfulness
with Andrew Olendzki
Saturday, November 14th, 2020 | 10:00am – 1:00pm ET
The Buddha taught in a pre-literate age to a diverse population. In addition of speaking slowly and clearly, repeating his phrasing often, organizing his teachings into lists, and telling vivid stories, he also made liberal use of metaphor.
In this program we will look closely at some of the images, similes, and other literary devices used in the Pali Canon, and in some later literature, to define and describe the practice of mindfulness. We will pause from time to time to examine some of these images experientially as an aid to our own meditation practice.
