This is an AABCAP online event featuring speakers Susan Moylan-Coombs, Bhante Sujato and Venerable Jue Wei. Chaired by AABCAP’s Dr Joyce Man, this event includes a presentation from all 3 speakers and a panel discussion with audience Q&A.
Susan Moylan-Coombs, Gurindji Woolwonga woman, living on Gai-mariagal country will speak about the ancient “wisdom” of this land, from the perspective of the oldest living culture on the planet and discuss the ability to incorporate these philosophies in contemporary society. When we understand the “TriSacred”, the balance of the three worlds, we will all be able to live more sustainable lives. We need to create a new story of connection for all Australians to create social change by bringing people and communities together to find the unity in CommUNITY.
Bhante Sujato will share the wisdom as expounded by the Buddhist sutras and discuss their continued relevance in our modern times. He will refer to our personal and collective responsibility and our practical contributions to issues of climate change and various forms of discriminations.
Venerable Jue Wei:
The global impact of Covid-19 has been profound. This interruption has offered humanity an opportunity to reflect on what we have been invited to learn. Reviewing the wisdom inthe Perfection of Wisdom (prajñāpāramitā) literature and the accomplishments of Venerable Master Hsing Yun in the past few decades, Venerable hopes to demonstrate how Buddhist wisdom may contribute towards dismantling the constructed and improving our understanding of the true nature of our experiences. She will then discuss our intrinsic ability to leverage the power of communities in the face of vulnerabilities.
