The Scandal of Boundless Love 

“Radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.” – The Buddha

This year’s Vesak celebration, commemorating the Buddha’s birth, awakening, and final release, will focus on boundless love. At first glance, boundless love may seem ho-hum.

When we contemplate boundless love deeply, though, we may feel scandalized. While we might easily regard certain beings with love—the near and dear, the innocent, even the neutral—the Buddha insists that love is for everyone, even our enemies, even ourselves.

Using meditation, discussion, and chanting, we will endeavor to move beyond the existing limits of our love into the boundlessness the Buddha taught.

American Red Cross Blood Drive
Tuesday, April 13, 11:30 am – 5:30 pm

By appointment only!

We will be hosting another blood drive at our Center for one day only through the American Red Cross.

You must schedule your blood donation ahead of time at the following link – BLOOD DRIVE.  Use the sponsor code:  VCSL

All donated blood will be tested for the COVID-19 antibodies.  Donors will receive the results about 7-10 days after their donation to see if they have, at some point, been exposed to the virus and have created antibodies to fight it.

For more information, visit the American Red Cross website or call (805) 285-8894.
