Our group follows along with the Upāsikā/Upāsaka program offered by Birken Forest Monastery for the monthly study sessions. The term Upāsikā/Upāsaka refers to dedicated lay practitioners who are interested in a deeper understanding of the Dhamma. The program follows a month(s) long focus on various different themes within the Buddha’s teachings relying on Suttas, commentary by various Ajahns (teachers), and Dhamma talks as outlined by the Upāsikā/Upāsaka program offered by Birken Forest Monastery. As such the discussion is constrained to the topic material offered below.
