Modern Buddhism & Meditation Class
THE WISDOM TO KNOW HOW TO TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE THURSDAYS, 7PM - 8:30PM This series will be based on the teachings from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s latest book "How to Transform Your Life" Free Download ( In this series of classes we will explore this ancient wisdom that completely accords with modern daily life. As he teaches in this book, "Through practicing the instructions given by Buddha we can transform our life from a state of misery into one of pure and everlasting happiness”. These instructions are scientific methods to improve our human nature. In our outer world of political, economical, educational , and environmental crisis we need some inner protection. Everybody needs to be good natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and make our life meaningful. Every living beings has the same basic wish – to be happy and avoid suffering. Even new born babies, animals and insects have this wish. It has been our main wish since beginningless time and it is with us all the time, even during our sleep. We spend our whole life working hard to fulfill this wish. If we check deeply we know this is true. Yet, we have not fully accomplished this. If we learn to use our human life to accomplish inner protection, inner peace and true happiness , regardless of external conditions we can make our human life immensely meaningful and begin to actualize our full potential. What could be more meaningful? Everyone is welcome to one class or the entire series. You don’t have to be a Buddhist or have any experience to attend.
