Meditation & Modern Buddhism
with Gen Kelsang Osung
Why do we teach Modern Buddhism?
The meditation we teach at our classes comes originally from the Buddha and has been practised for over 2600 years. In that time the world has changed immeasurably but what hasn’t changed is our search for happiness and contentment in life. Despite the benefits of living in the 21st century we still encounter difficulties, hardship, dissatisfaction and unhappiness.
This on-going series of classes will go step by step through all the extraordinary methods Buddha taught for working with our mind, developing a good heart, understanding our reality and discovering how we can profoundly transform it.
You don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from the classes as they are specifically designed to be accessible to modern people of all backgrounds. All you need is a mind, and the wish to improve it!
These classes are based on the book Modern Buddhism in which the author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says:
“Through reading and practicing the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.”
