This Tuesday, Gaylynne Carter will do a dharma talk about the Order of Interbeing, which is an institution established by Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh in 1966. This is the Buddhism tradition that Gaylynne first took her lay practicioner vows and commense her devotion to the three jewels (the three jewels are the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha). Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most respected Buddhist masters up next to the Dalai Lama.
The Dharma talk will be on Tuesday, February 1st beginning 6:30 PM at the Ecumenical Center on 8310 Ewing Halsell Drive in San Antonio, Texas.
This is a talk that I am looking forward to, I am a practicing Buddhist, following the teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh through the Community of Mindful Living. This is one of the events that I will be going to leading up to, and continuing after Tet, the Vietnamese New Year which is this Thursday.
Earlier in the day on Tuesday, I will be making the drive up to Austin, TX to get some food for the new year. Wednesday night I will be visiting the Buddhist Temple of San Antonio near the medical center for new year activities and festivities. Finishing the week I will be spending the day at the Institute of Texan Cultures celebrating the new year at the Asian Festival.
