Overcoming Anger: The Power of Patience

Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center

$10.00

Patience is a virtue. So, what does that make anger? Anger is a cause of suffering, for both ourself and for others. Beacuse of this simple understanding Buddha said we need to abandon anger. Although anger sometimes seems useful, careful reflection reveals that anger always leaves us burned in one way or another. Patience, on the other hand, leads to peace and happiness. We will never be disappointed that we practiced patience. In fact, we will find that the greater our patience, the happier we are. In this series of 8 classes, there will be an opportunity to learn precisely what is anger, how it arises, and why we should abandon it as well as the nature of patience, its benefits and how to practice being patient. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience. Class fee is $10 reduced rates available https://meditateinolympia.org/overcoming-anger-2019-tac/

Treasury of Merit

6556 24th Ave NW

This event is in Seattle. Imagination is a powerful tool for visualizing desired outcomes. Imagining an assembly of Buddhas in what is called the Field of Merit gives us an opportunity to develop a unique relationship with these holy beings, bringing about extraordinary personal transformation. This practice is the basis of many Buddhist rituals for purifying negativity and accumulating positive energy, or merit. Come learn how to have meaningful and transformative experiences simply by developing the power of imagination. This course, led by Gen Khedrub from Seattle and Gen Wangpo from Olympia, provides an opportunity to hear different perspectives on Buddha's teachings and enjoy coming together with others in the Pacific Northwest community of Kadampas. Everyone is welcome to stay for the two-hour Offering to the Spiritual Guide practice that starts at 3:30 pm.

Death and Dying: A Buddhist Perspective

Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center

$12.00

Join us for our Monday Night Lecture (once a month) series. We are alive, therefore we will die. This is a simple truth. We are not shocked when we hear these words. Yet, how much does death shape our life? We do not need to live in a state of constant fear of dying, nor do we need to die with regrets. We can balance the days in our life with a healthy understanding of death and we will find more meaning and happiness arising from our decisions. We will be looking at Death and Dying over the course of 3 classes, each class being held on the 3rd week of the month (see below for the day and date. Each class will look at a different aspect of death and dying from the Buddhist perspective. In this class, we will look at what is death and what we need to do if we want to be prepared. https://meditateinolympia.org/death-and-dying-2019/
