Published 5:14 pm Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Tryon has started a series of meetings to explore world faith traditions. In November, Native American traditions was the topic. This Sunday, Feb. 4, in lieu of a traditional service, a presentation based upon Buddhist teachings will be held. 

Rev. Marc Mullinax

Reverend Marc Mullinax, professor of Religion and Philosophy will present an introductory “Dharma Talk” on Buddhist Basics and how one may experience the power of this great world religion. Included in this talk will be relevant historical stories of the Buddha, basic teachings, the roles of karma and enlightenment, and the influence that meditation has in this 21st Century. This one-hour event will include Buddhist music and video, a Question and Answer period, and conclude with “next steps” if one wants more information or experiences. 

Unitarian Universalists believe in developing individual spiritual paths and that great truths and wisdoms exists in many faith traditions. The Fellowship plans to present future sessions on other world faiths.
