This Sunday series is based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book How to Transform Your Life. This book is a practical manual for daily life that shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, how we can reduce and stop our experience of problems, and how we can bring about positive changes in our lives that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness.
Each class includes guided meditation, teaching, and discussion. Since these drop-in classes are designed both as a series and as stand-alone classes, you are welcome to attend any time. No registration needed. No prior experience or commitment required.
In this drop in class, you will receive commentary and guided meditations from the book Introduction to Buddhism, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Beginning with Buddha’s life story, this concise guide explains the essential elements of the Buddhist way of life, such as understanding the mind, rebirth, karma and ultimate truth, and what it means to be a Buddhist. Meditation is explained clearly and simply as a tool for developing qualities such as inner peace, love and patience. The emphasis throughout is on the practical application of Buddhist ideas and practice to find solutions to everyday problems. Those interested in Buddhism and meditation will find this book a rich source of guidance and inspiration.
Each class includes guided meditations, teachings based on the book, and discussion. Since these Drop-In classes are designed both as a series and as stand-alone classes, you are welcome to attend each week or at any time. No need to attend from the start of the book. Registration is not required and no prior experience or commitment is needed.
