Buddhism - Wednesday, November 15th

Buddhism, Tantric Buddhism, Rama - Frederick Lenz. We will discuss some of the aspects of gaining that ineffable state of mind.

Rama Video - The Ethical Creation and Marketing of Software


This film and book from Chicago 1993 brings you into the meeting hall with Rama and some of his students. Since many students had recently started or were about to launch their own software companies, Rama cuts right to the core of software development and all activities in life ethics.

As you watch, you'll see how Rama looked at every subject from multiple points of view to create a Buddhist mindset of giving, kindness, and kaizen (continuous improvement). He provides common-sense advice that breaks down activities into manageable steps to help you achieve your desired outcomes in life all coming from a strong ethical base.

"Don't fake it, learn it." -- Rama

I recommend that everyone watch this video. The heart of this video is on ethics - not just being a good or bad person, but making decisions based on intense respect for ourselves and others and letting our life flow from a natural enthusiasm for what we do and how we engage with others
