Jacky's invitation

(Click on the image for better resolution)

Dear sangha,

Kurt's book "Buddha at the Apocalypse" is coming out on May 1st, 2010. Jacky, who some of you might already know served as the literary agent for the book (and ofcourse is a long time ordained sangha member "Kanki"), is throwing a publication party to celebrate the publication.

12:30 to 4 pm, May 2nd , Faculty Dining Hall
(Douglass Campus Center, 100 George Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901: Campus Map and directions)

RSVP (for complimentary lunch):

12:30 (Complimentary Lunch for first 75 sangha members to RSVP to Jacky 'Kanki' Fernandez)
1:30 (Doors open for public to attend author's talk, book signing)
3:30 (Desserts and Hot Beverages)

If you plan to buy the book, Jacky asks that you please hold off until May 2nd.... It would be a great sangha get together and we can have Kurt sign books that afternoon! Jacky will be sending out formal press releases with final details by early March, but we wanted to get a quick idea about how many people would be interested to join for such an event.

If you are interested in buying books for this sangha event, take a moment and please answer a poll on the left hand side of the screen. Your response will greatly help us get organized. If you have any other suggestions about the event, you can email Jacky directly.

And what do we know, "Cold Mountain Sangha" now has a facebook page!! I got inspired after finding some very senior sangha members on facebook (won't name them). Here is the link Membership is open for now.

The idea is to have an interface that can help us connect, comment and the very least have a platform to share information about rides to and from sesshin etc. March sesshin is approaching and many people will need rides for weekend sesshin. Instead of needing to ask Kurt, we can directly post our request or availability to give/take ride on facebook. (By the way, in case you didn't know, Kurt is allowing us to come for weekends much more easily.) So....if you enjoy being on internet, please join the facebook page of our sangha and may be find out how naughty or versatile real sangha members (who only seem to love sitting in deep silence) are!
