Buddhist Meditation

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. 

Join us for weekly guided meditations, talk and discussion. Everyone welcome!

From Self-centered to New Realizations

June 6, 13, 20,  27

IN-PERSON

Did you know that many highly realized Buddhist practitioners like Geshe Langri Tangpa were once ordinary people just like us? If we practice their instructions of training the mind wholeheartedly and patiently, there is no reason that we too should not attain similar realizations.
