Meditation & Buddhist Study with Dharma Teacher Khedrub Zangmo.
This class has been ongoing in Pasadena since January 2004.
We meet every Wednesday from 7pm – 9pm for
Meditation, Teachings and Discussion at the Pasadena Senior Center.
The first half of the class focuses on the practice of meditation. Meditation instruction is offered at the beginning of class.
If the session has already begun when you arrive, please feel free to join us.
Any and all questions regarding meditation practice are most welcomed.
The second half of the class we typically read and discuss a section of a Buddhist text in order to understand and apply the teachings to our daily lives.
The next 5 classes we will be studying, A Precious Human Birth. (Wednesday 4/1 - 4/29)
Too much suffering is not good. If you become always manipulated by it, if suffering is always the boss, that is not good. And if you have too little suffering, you will not be inspired to pursue real happiness. That is why we speak of 'precious human birth.' Because being born in the human body provides just the right amount of suffering that we need in order to transform suffering into a source of wisdom and knowledge. - Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Every week we will be sending out material for us to study and discuss in the following class. This will consist of short teachings that our resident teacher will be selecting for us. The wish is for us to study, contemplate, and meditate on this profound topic and bring our questions and experiences to class for discussion and guidance from Lama Khaydroup.
Please see our Meetup announcement for more details.
Beginners are always welcomed.
A $10 donation to help support the center is suggested.
