Meditation must be followed up by practice in daily life. But meditation can take place in other forms, such as the art of calligraphy. From the Tang Dynasty there arose the practice of sutra copying as an aid to meditation and to appreciating the deeper Dharma. Traditionally in the East, sutra copying for lay practitioners was encouraged as a means of earning merit.
Hung-Chang Chen, an accomplished Taiwanese calligrapher will lead a class aimed at both complete beginners and budding calligraphers. You are all welcome to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
