Why do you have a pendulum in your logo?

It’s because the pendulum is a great metaphor for equanimity and our practice.

The basic pendulum consists of three parts. At the top is the Frictionless Pivot, from which hangs The Rod that connects to the big weight or “Massive Bob” at the bottom that swings from one extreme to the other. The uninstructed worldling, as the Buddha called those not trained in the Dharma, hangs out at the Massive Bob end of things, swinging wildly with the vicissitudes of life. The Buddha, with his equanimity was the Frictionless Pivot. In the course of our practice, we will find ourselves moving between the two. It is through our practice that we develop the ability to move closer to the Frictionless Pivot, and farther away from the wildly swinging Massive Bob.

becomes the inclination of the heart and mind."
~ The Buddha

 

Hi there. I'm Rev. George Beecher, a Buddhist teacher in Lawrenceville GA.

 

I was ordained as Khantu-Abatti (The Forbearing One) and empowered to teach as a Dharmacharya (Dharma Teacher) in the Theravada and Mahayana lineages by Venerable Pannavati Bhikkhuni and Venerable Pannadipa Bhikkhu.

Prior to ordaining I was certified as a Buddhist Meditation and Group Facilitator through the original Against The Stream Buddhist Meditation Society under the guidance of JoAnna Hardy and Vinny Ferraro.

I founded Two Hands Sangha in 2012 and still teach there today, and I serve as the official Buddhist Reverend at the invitation of the Virtual Reality social community “Together with TRIPP” in various virtual worlds across the Metaverse and in the TRIPP app.

People often ask what ‘Dharmacharya’ means. Venerable Pannavati explained it as: "A Dharmacharya is an exemplar – one who lives the Dharma (teachings of the Buddha); one who teaches the Dharma by example."

 

And it is my deepest wish to live up to that beautiful definition to the best of my ability​.
