Do Buddhists pray? 16th April Sangha Night

There were 42 of us tonight! To warm us up to this topic, people watched a “thought for the day” by Lalitavira (an Order member based in Dublin) talking about how poems can be a kind of prayer here and we read Sangharakshita’s reflections on prayer in Buddhism here. People brought some poems which speak to us at the moment and read them out in groups. We also talked in small groups about whether we pray or whether we include prayer in our practice. Nagadevi started off the evening with a reflection on a poem called Dark Pines Under Water by Gwendolyn MacEwen. We ended the evening reading some poems aloud to the whole group.
