The Muffin Syndrome

Public talk, 7.30 - 8.30 pm, 9 November 2018.

Featured Speaker:Brian Parry
Venue:Newcastle Lodge


About the Presentation

Most of us are plagued by a variety of problems. Often, we are unaware of a problem until something happens to bring it squarely to our attention. The newly discovered Muffin Syndrome is symptomatic of many such problems.

We are used to seeing The Voice of The Silence as a text book for would-be Arhats. So it came as something of a surprise to find the remedy for the Muffin Syndrome and others like it clearly dealt with in The Voice of The Silence teaching on the Three Halls.

The teaching on the first and second Halls will be explored and there will be ample opportunity to discuss both the syndromes and the approaches to their resolution. If you have a copy of the Voice of The Silence please bring it with you.
