April 20: What is Meditation?
7 – 8:30pm
In each class we will engage in one lamrim (stages of the path to Enlightenment) meditation. Each class will consist of a guided breathing meditation, followed by a teaching to familiarize ourselves with the points to contemplate. This will be followed by a guided meditation on the lamrim meditation. After the meditation, there will be advice on how we can put our new understanding into practice in our daily life. In this way, we can deepen our experience of the lamrim meditation in the week ahead.
This class is looks at the basics of meditation. What are the benefits of meditation and how can we start a meditation practice? The lamrim meditation practices that are presented in this series are actual methods to control our mind. Venerable Geshe-la encourages us:
By continuously engaging in these meditations with joy and patience, we will accomplish the ultimate goal of human life.
Join Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Kunden for 21 Meditations April 20 with time to contemplate and meditate on profound teachings that will deepen our inner experience of wisdom and compassion.
Everyone is welcome regardless of background or previous experience.
