This is the second of two series on the book Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Students do not need to have attended the first series in order to enjoy this series.
During this series, Sharon Lovich will show how we can understand Buddha’s very first teaching, the oft-misunderstood Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths encourages everyone to follow true paths to inner freedom and peace. During the second half of the series, Gen Nyema will explain how to practice this path, known as the Six Perfections, within the context of our hectic daily life.
Everyone is welcome to attend, no previous experience required. Drop in for any class.
Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A. Class will end with Prayers for World Peace.
