Lama Atisha's Garland of Gems

A Special Teaching Series on Mind Training

Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche continues this special teaching series on Sunday 9/8/2013 @ 7:30pm.

What is the motivation of our life? What is the value of our life?

We currently go with the flow according to our karma and habitual patterns, controlled by afflictions. Sometimes we feel energized, sometimes we feel sluggish. Only when we can understand our life correctly, understand cause and effect, and position our life towards the right direction, we can have motivation to cultivate The Four Common Practices to accumulate merit asset, and then use the Four Noble Truth to remove the suffering and the causes of suffering completely, and create happiness and the causes of happiness. In this way we can realize the true value of our life.

No need to have attended previous classes. Rinpoche teaches from our San Jose center. We will connect with live streaming at our Green Brook location. Please RSVP.

    So far Rinpoche has taught only the first two lines of the Garland of Gems prayer, yet he has covered so many aspects of the essence of Buddha’s teachings. Each class Rinpoche teaches from a different angle, and opens a new window for us, so that we can have better and deeper understanding of our mind, our life, and the external world.
