Discussion Details:


Buddhism advocates the faith that surroundings is generated from our mind. Most of the time, we cannot determine the surroundings we are in, but you can change it as long as you can face the reality bravely and know how to adjust your mind properly.


Many of the monks of Beijing Longquan Monastery graduated from the best universities in China but gave up distinguished careers to devote themselves to a pure life. There is also an abbot who uses the internet and social media to spread the lofty and eternal values of Buddhism in a multitude of languages.


Ven. Xianli and Ven, Xianxun from Longquan will visit Northwestern University on 6th, December. They will discuss the wisdom of Buddhism and share their life stories with you. Because of their similar education background with us and their profound thinking of life, this meetup will probably bring you more awakening and understanding of your life.
