Book Discussion Group – Led by Paul Gerhards

“Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert Pirsig.
“The study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of the art of rationality itself. Working on a motorcycle, working well, caring, is to become part of a process, to achieve an inner peace of mind. The motorcycle is primarily a mental phenomenon….The real cycle you’re working on is yourself.” — From the book
The PFoD book discussion group creates an opportunity for community members to come together in a social atmosphere to discuss how Dhamma reveals itself in fiction and nonfiction.
Our intention is to explore titles outside the category of Buddhist instruction or commentary in favor of those where factors of Dhamma may not be immediately apparent. In doing so, we may more easily see how lessons of Dhamma and opportunities of practice reveal themselves in our workaday lives.
Open to all.
