This Monday night, brother Phap Vu will visit our sangha. Join us in welcoming him to our community. After our sitting, he will share some thoughts and then open the space for questions and sharing.
Brother Phap Vu was born in Chicago, Illinois but spent most of his life in Southern California. He began practicing in the Dharma through the Chinese Chan tradition in the mid 90's. In 2003 he was ordained as a buddhist monk in the Plum Village tradition, a Mahayana tradition, by Thich Nhat Hanh, and given the name Thich Chan Phap Vu. Later, in 2011 he received the Lamp Transmission, a ceremony recognizing him as a Dharma Teacher. For more information about his journey go here.
