Join us for an afternoon of music and readings by author Janet Ettele. Record producer and Ridgefield resident, Gary Lefkowith will introduce the event. He and Janet and will also perform a few pieces of their original music.
As a student of Buddhist dharma, Janet Ettele is inspired to bring its teachings into contemporary practice through her writing and her music. Her work brings one of the world’s most profound teachings on compassion and wisdom into common language through the art of contemporary fiction, and by cultivating familiarity with the teaching, brings peace to readers, and thereby to others.
How Generosity Works, How the Root of Kindness Works, and How Patience Works are the first three books published by Karuna Publication that Ms. Ettele has written in a series that is based on the teachings by the eighth century Buddhist monk, Master Shantideva. Known as The Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, or The Six Perfections, his teachings are known as one of the most renowned texts in Buddhism.
Janet Ettele graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston and worked in the entertainment industry prior to becoming a mother. In 2012 Janet served on the committee that brought the Dalai Lama to Danbury, CT where His Holiness gave two public talks at Western Connecticut State University.
This program is co-sponsored with Books on the Common. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
