Buddha’s Return from Heaven Day

Offering to the Spiritual Guide Prayers with Tsog

Friday, September 22, 6pm

The Six Perfections are Buddha’s teaching on how to become a true friend of the world, someone who has a strong aspiration to fully realize their own human potential in order to benefit others with their every thought and action.  This special intention has been called “the source of peace and happiness for all living beings.” Through developing this extraordinary wish, our mind becomes expansive and peaceful, filled with love, and our daily problems disappear.  We also gain a great ability to help others in the most appropriate and beneficial ways, leading them away from their own suffering and towards experiences of happiness and freedom.

The Happiness Course:

Inner Peace, Discipline, and Love

Saturday, September 23, 10am-1pm
With Kadampa Teacher, Kitty Connolly

Do you ever feel like something is missing? Whether we “have it all” or not, external things can’t make us happy, because happiness comes from within. More specifically, without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. By developing self-discipline we can create the causes of inner peace and happiness. And all the happiness there is in this world arises from wishing others to be happy, which is real love. In this introductory meditation retreat, Kadampa Teacher Kitty Connolly will introduce the basics of inner peace, discipline, and love, explaining why each one is essential for our happiness, and guiding us in practical meditations on them.


Everybody Welcome
