Meet like-minded people interested in meditation near you! Learn how to meditate or deepen your current meditation practice. A trademark of the meditations we emphasize is the ease in which they can be used both “on the cushion” and in our daily lives.
Each meeting will include practical, guided meditation, and a talk on how to reduce stress and other problems encountered in daily life and how to increase mental and physical well-being. There will also be plenty of time to discuss the ideas presented.
Although the meditations and talks are based on Kadampa Buddhist philosophy, you don't need to be a Buddhist to enjoy this group. Kadampa Buddhism stresses a spiritual path of individual transformation and to look within ourselves for the inner peace and happiness we seek. Everyone is welcome!
This group is organized by Kadampa Meditation Center New York, located in Glen Spey, NY. If you would like more details about the class and the temple in Glen Spey, try this link:
In the book The Bodhisattva Vow, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso explains exquisite and rare guidelines for living a purposeful life in a busy and hectic world. By applying these powerful methods Buddha taught for leading a life based in compassion and wisdom, we can help our family, neighborhood, and world find real happiness and a better quality of life.
Through applying these accessible and practical techniques to our daily life, we can transform ourselves into something extraordinary. We become a Bodhisattva, or a friend of the world.
“It is said that there exists a magic crystal that has the power to purify any liquid into which it is placed. Those who cherish all living beings are like this crystal–by their very presence they remove negativity from the world and give back love and kindness.”
-Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Whatever habit or routine we introduce into our life, there are periods where we can lose momentum and feel like we are dragging our feet to keep it going. Meditation practice requires steady effort, like a broad-flowing river. If we approach it like a crashing waterfall that follows a sudden storm, our practice will dry up and we will give up altogether.
