What we're about
Most of us spend a lot of our time focused on our outer well-being. But we don't take much care of our own "inner life". We feel we are focused on the right quadrants for a happy life, but we all have the shared experience that life continues to have many ups and downs. All of our best coping strategies are found to be temporary. Our happiness is fleeting and unpredictable. We may spend our whole life working toward obtaining an outer goal to make our lives happy, but maybe in all our busyness, we never get the chance to live from our hearts - to live a meaningful life. Before we know it, we are too old to do all the things we worked so hard to give ourselves the time to do later in life. Life is unpredictable. Our life is precious, and should be meaningful from the inside out.
This meetup group allows you time to contemplate your life from a totally different angle than we usually do. Buddhism teachers you how to cultivate your inner mind. Cultivating your inner mind, you can find the causes of stability, happiness, and peace. You can find the best way to navigate and guide your life. This will help you wake yourself up from your numb routines, and let your inner heart be the root of your life.
All our meetings are under the guidance and instruction of our Lama, Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, the world renowned teacher of the Manjushri Lineage Buddha Dharma Center. We will have the opportunity to connect with Rinpoche by live video webcast. We also have a world-wide contemplation teaching forum online. Please contact us for more information.
