Tuesday Night | 7–8:15PM

New Year, New You

In recent years our knowledge of modern technology has increased considerably, and as a result, we have witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in human happiness.

Happiness and suffering are states of mind and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.

In this series, we will explore more deeply beneficial Buddhist intentions and views that can solve our human problems. Through practicing Kadam Lamrim in our daily life, we can experience more peace of mind and accomplish the real meaning of our human life.

Jan 7 – Understanding the Capacity of Our Mind
Jan 14 – Solving Our Human Problems
Jan 21 – Faith: Creating Beneficial Wishes, Effort & Actions
Jan 28 – How Can Our Death Be Meaningful?
Feb 4 – Understanding Modern Buddhism in Daily Life
Feb 11 – Transforming Our Mind with Lamrim Meditations

For this series, we will be using the book Modern Buddhism by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
