July 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Changing Nature of Reality

Saturday 2 July In Person

Sunday 3 July Online

With Gen Kelsang Drolkyi

About this course

This course looks at subtle impermanence which explains the constantly changing nature of things.

In How to Understand the Mind Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says ‘In reality we do not remain the same for one moment without changing, let alone for one life. Without the I of the previous moment ceasing, the I of the next moment could not arise. The I of one moment is the cause of the I of the next moment, and a cause and its effect cannot exist at the same time.’ 

Even though we know that everything, including ourself, changes and nothing lasts, we often resist change and struggle with the uncertainty it brings.

When we learn to embrace the truth of impermanence we can let go of worry, accept our different experiences, and develop a flexible mind. In this way we can live lightly and wisely, able to adapt to changes in ourself and our life.

Everyone is welcome!
