“When the oil of an oil lamp is exhausted, the flame goes out because the flame is produced from the oil; but when our body dies our consciousness is not extinguished, because consciousness is not produced from the body.
~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso — from The New Meditation Handbook

May 11: The Danger of Lower Rebirth
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 based on the lamrim meditation: the dangers of lower rebirth. The purpose of this meditation is to encourage us to seek protection from the dangers of lower rebirth. If we do not prepare for protection from lower rebirth now, while we have a human life with all its freedom and endowments, once we have taken lower rebirth it will be extremely difficult to attain a precious human life again.

Join Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Kunden for 21 Meditations 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.
