About these classes

Ever wondered why we experience so many problems and unwanted occurrences? They are simply the effects of our previous negative actions. So what can we do about it?

We can purify those karmic seeds through purification practice. Once we’ve purified our negative karma those actions can not ripen so we are freed from their suffering effects.

Come along to learn the simple techniques of purification and prayer in this 3 week meditation course, the last of our series based on the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

The teachings in this series will help us to live a happy and meaningful life, prepare for our death and also help others who are dying. In this way, instead of something to be feared or denied, death can become a positive experience.

“There is nothing more precious than our human life. Having been born as a human being we have immense freedom to accomplish almost anything we want. With so much freedom, we need to ask ourself what is the most meaningful way to use our life. What will make us truly happy? What will benefit others most? And when this life is over, what will help us then?” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, ‘Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully’
