Philosophy/ Buddhism


Tuesday, August 13, 2013


1:30pm to 3:00pm




Join the West Los Angeles Buddhist Club where your questions are encouraged and welcome. The topic of discussion for this session continues with our examination into who we are with respect to our blind passions.  Additionally, we will view our image reflected in the mirror of Dharma based "On Vanity."

Vanity is the greatest cause of failure. As we rise in status and come into greater wealth, we begin to look down on others. Puffed with vanity, we see nothing wrong with our behavior. But, "the stalk of rice with the most fruit bows the lowest." Any rise in status or increase in wealth must be accompanied by geater humility.  We must become like stalks of rice. It cannot be said too often: don't be vain.
