Traveling Buddhist monk returns to HACC-Gettysburg Campus

Community invited to hear Bhante Sujatha’s presentation on Feb. 15


GETTYSBURG – Bhante Sujatha, a traveling Buddhist monk from the Blue Lotus Temple in Chicago, returns to HACC-Gettysburg Campus this month to discuss meditation with philosophy students.
The public is invited to attend this free presentation between 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the Robert C. Hoffman community room at the campus, 731 Old Harrisburg Road.
Sujatha spoke to students, faculty and staff during a visit in December, and was well-received, said Budd Hallberg, philosophy instructor.
“I really enjoyed his visit,” wrote Kristi Gift, who plans to attend the Feb. 15 presentation. “He was so kind and really put out a lot of good information. Bhante encouraged questions and gave worthwhile answers. It's a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.”
During Sujatha’s visit in December, the monk told his audience the purpose of meditation is to clear the mind of everyday clutter that circulates inside our heads and is as beneficial as a good night’s sleep, Hallberg said.
 For more information visit, call 337-3855.
