About these classes
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.
They are based on the book Modern Buddhism in which the author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says:
“Through reading and practising the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.”
You can download Modern Buddhism as a free Ebook here: http://emodernbuddhism.com/
You don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from the classes as they are specifically designed to be accessible to people of all backgrounds. Everyone is welcome.
The Way Things Really Are
There is no greater method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on emptiness.
Since it is our self-grasping that keeps us bound to the prison of samsara and is the source of all our suffering, meditation on emptiness is the universal solution to all our problems.
It is the medicine that cures all mental and physical diseases, and the nectar that bestows the everlasting happiness of nirvana and enlightenment.
Join us for this 4 week course contemplating and meditating on Buddha’s teachings on the true nature of reality.
