Effective Meditation for Everyone!

Class time  Thursdays 7:00pm – 8:15pm with Gen Kelsang Chogden

This class is a wonderful and insightful presentation of how we can apply meditation and Buddhism to our busy modern lifestyles. The teachings are practical advice that we can immediately put into practice to find greater love, compassion and wisdom in our everyday lives. There is usually a time for Q&A and class discussion. This class is an ideal starting point for those interested to find out more about Buddhism and meditation. The program is a drop-in class, walk-ins are welcome! 

Why Are We Disappointed with Daily Life

While we remain attached to resources and respect, pleasure, a good reputation and praise, our mind is unbalanced and we are inclined to become over-excited when we possess them and dejected when we lose them. We remain unstable, vulnerable and emotionally dependent upon these things. Most of our energy goes into securing them and guarding against their loss.  Yet there is no way to hold onto these things and they only bring temporary happiness. In the cycle of impure life, samsara, we never reach a point when we can say, “Now I am completely satisfied; I need nothing more. By applying Buddha’s teachings to our daily life we can learn to keep a contented, peaceful mind in the midst of the ups and downs of life.
