Meditations for World Peace

Kadampa Meditation Center Florida

In this class we will look at the book, “Eight Steps to Happiness’. As a commentary to one of Buddhism’s best-loved and most enduring teachings, Eight Verses of Training the Mind by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva Langri Tangpa, it explains how to transform every moment of our life into a step on the path to inner peace, and in particular how to transform all of life’s difficulties into truly liberating experiences. Geshe Kelsang shows how all our problems originate from a deeply ingrained tendency to cherish oneself more than others. He explains simple methods to eradicate this stultifying perspective and replace it with a genuine wish to cherish others. Classes for kids are held at the same time in our small meditation room, please click here for more information. Kadampa Meditation Center Florida also offers food and beverages in the cafe after class in the community area for people to relax after class and have a chance to meet and get to know the community.
