Letters for sangha members at different stages

At Amida Mandala we give people a letter to take home after the first and sixth service they attend, and also after they’ve taken refuge and become a member of Amida Shu. This is our way of trying to look after people in these different categories – from complete beginners to mature spiritual practitioners – and both let them know about what is possible and help them make progress on their spiritual path by sign-posting what’s available to them.

You may want to use these letters or a version of your own, or you may just want to think about these different categories of people when they come to your group. Our aim is always to help people feel at home.
