Understanding The Cause and Effect of Peace of Mind
"My mind is stubborn and inferior, strong habitual patterns block me like a barrier. The evil fog of afflictions disturbs the mind and prevents reflection. Sailing against the current takes perseverance and courage. Destroy the darkness to eventually see the bright light." -Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, world renowned teacher and Lineage Holder of the Manjushri Lineage The common teaching of Buddha is “Do not commit any non-virtuous actions, perform only virtuous actions, subdue the mind thoroughly.” While this teaching may be familiar to us, how to perform it is most likely unfamiliar or difficult to do the majority of the time. However, Buddhism teaches us how to think differently about our life in order to act differently, thereby affecting our inner mind and our outer world in more positive and beneficial ways. Want to learn more about what you can do to help yourself make progress on the path to achieving ultimate happiness? Please join us on Sunday afternoons at 1:30 PM for an introduction to the main principles that are the foundation of the Buddhist path. You can also learn about our world renowned teacher, the lineage holder of the Manjushri Lineage, who will be teaching a series of classes in San Jose, beginning this coming weekend. We meet by connecting via webcast from our homes. Please RSVP and we will send you the webcast link and instructions before the meeting. For more information, please email or text Julie as early as possible before the Sunday meeting: [masked] or[masked]

What we're about


Welcome to the Connecticut Meetup Group “Buddhist Study & Meditation for Cultivating Compassion”. We are a group of warm-hearted, sincere Buddhist practitioners and spiritual seekers in search of creating more stability, peace of mind, happiness and compassion within our daily lives. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow spiritually, whether you are just beginning or have been studying for many years.

In today's day and age, compassion and loving-kindness are like rare jewels that are hard to come by, yet these rare jewels aren't just luxuries but are necessities to living a full, happy, and complete life. We need more love in order to create more inner and outer happiness in our lives. Our happiness is dependent on others happiness. Buddhism gives us the wisdom to see how to cultivate compassion.

We have the great good fortune to be guided on our journey by Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, a very humble yet immensely accomplished yogi, whose sincerity, dedication & guidance is very inspiring & brings the Buddhist teachings alive in our daily lives.

We will be offering members opportunities to attend teachings, meditation groups, and other fun spiritually nourishing activities. As well as posting insightful quotes from our Lama Mingjo Rinpoche and other great Buddhist teachers on the message board from time to time, to keep us all inspired and informed. Please feel free to post any questions or comments on our page whenever you wish.
