The Diamond Way Buddhist Center kicks off our fall lecture tour tomorrow (Sunday). Every semester, we host introductory lectures, mainly at local college campuses. This year, we have local, regional, and even international teachers taking turns providing teachings. The tour concludes with our biggest event, hosting Lama Ole Nydahl on November 30th. I'll be adding all these to our calendar in a minute, so pardon the wave of emails if they all come individually. For a succinct schedule, you can see it just below.
Meditation & Joy - Modern introduction to Buddhas Teachings
Each lecture lasts approximately one hour and consists of introductory teachings and discussion on how the methods and philosophy of Buddhism can develop lasting joy and how the ancient teachings is useful in our modern, western life. Following each lecture there is an opportunity to experience a short, guided meditation.
