April 21: A precious life

April 28: Accepting impermanence

May 5: Why Buddhists believe in past and future lives

May 12: Finding real protection from problems

 

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book Modern Buddhism:  The Path of Compassion and Wisdom is a perfect guide for understanding the basic teachings of Kadampa Buddhism and applying them to solve the problems of our daily life.  Buddhist or not, Kadampa Buddhist teachings help everyone to develop inner peace and find a rich, meaningful life.

This series will be the first of two following Modern Buddhism.  In this first series, Gen Nyema will explain what Kadampa Buddhism is, particularly the series of meditations known as “Kadam Lamrim.”  The first part of the Lamrim meditations include learning to value our precious human life, seizing its potential, and understanding the Buddhist view on what happens after this life.

Everyone is welcome to attend, no previous experience necessary.  Drop in for any class.

Class Format

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A. Class will end with Prayers for World Peace.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
