Post-Term Week: Dao De Ching, Hap Ki Do, Building

That went fast.  Diamond Mountain's Fall term 2008 is just about at its end.  The five weeks, as usual, went by like a dust devil.  But what to do with the void in your life that was once occupied by courses, debate, morning yoga, and sunburn treatment?  Fear not, there are still more events at DM after this term.  For the week following Fall term (November 10 - 15) there is a buffet of wonderful things.  

Firstly, Diamond Mountain will be graced with the presence of three guests from China who have agreed to teach the Dao De Ching and Hap Ki Do.  If you're not familiar with the Dao it is one of the principal texts of Chinese philosophy and very closely linked with Buddhism.  Not enough for you?  How about karma yoga.  Dedicated students will be continuing to build Geshe Michael and Lama Christie's 3-year retreat cabin/dome/house.  What?  You say you don't need to sleep or eat?  Well how about debate classes too!  Oh, and wouldn't your life be better after getting teachings on the six flavors of emptiness, taught by Susan Stumpf?  Yes, it would.

To download the week's full schedule head over to the Diamond Mountain events page.

See you there.

Last I checked it was spelled Tao Te Ching. You may want to research and change.

...alternate spelling would be Dao De Jing.

Thanks for the info. I always thought that it was Tao Te Ching too, but it seems that our Chinese translator prefers "Dao De Ching" for some reason. Regardless, it's just about impossible to capture Chinese tones with English characters. Yet we will continue to try.
