Meditation has a proven record in its ability to improve health, awaken happiness and give a clear perspective on life. It enables you to identify the real causes of unhappiness and recover from stress, anxiety as well as manage pain.

There are many styles of meditation and in this course we learn how to focus with single-pointed concentration on the breath as taught in the Buddhist tradition. This technique of mindfulness is a natural process and a fundamental life skill to help you to focus better on ordinary tasks.

PUBLIC TALK Friday 20thApril 2018 7:30PM - 9:30PM

How Karma Works Better with Dharma

The Dharma although non-theistic has a moral seriousness, due to its teachings on karma, cause and effect and the role of moral conduct in bringing about happiness and providing a foundation for spiritual practice. At a time when materialism regards people as mere machines, whose lives arise randomly and end without consequence, the dharma defends consciousness and the truth of past and future lives with sure reasoning.

DHARMAPADA: Words of the Buddha

Dharmapada is a selection of the Words of the Buddha captured in a special collection. Because of its universal appeal and timeless wisdom, many regard it as the Buddhist Bible.
Lama Choedak Rinpoche will read and translate directly from the Tibetan and explain the most profound words of the Buddha preserved in the Tibetan version of it known as Udanavarga.  The Buddhist world share "The words of the Buddha" as his own teachings. But they often quote certain phrases from discourses in the writings of early Buddhist masters such as Nagarjuna from 2nd century AD. So, it will be a great way to spend a day to hear on the Dharmapada that is so logical and practical for all to develop a form of emotional literacy that can transcend human suffering and start living consciously.
