“In reality, most of our emotional problems are nothing more than a failure to accept things as they are -- in which case it is patient acceptance, rather than attempting to change externals, that is the solution.” -- Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Solve Our Human Problems


Patient acceptance is often seen as a weak and passive mind, but actually, nothing could be further than the truth.  Patient acceptance is a powerful mind that makes us as strong and stable as a mountain.  When a mountain is struck by a thunderstorm, it remains unmoved.  In the same way, regardless of what “storms” arise in our daily life, our patience protects our peace of mind.  When we lack patience, we are like the pine trees lining the mountain -- we are easily disturbed by the challenges we face.  On the other hand, when we gain patience, we also gain the ability to remain peaceful, flexible, and clear-headed, no matter what the circumstances.


During this day course at Ganden Kadampa Buddhist Center, participants will begin to understand what patient acceptance really is and how to remain calm and relaxed in even the most challenging situations.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
