Sunday Meditation Sept 25
September 25, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Creating Our Happiness
in person only
7 – 8:30pm
Where does happiness come from? How can we create more happiness for ourselves and others? Buddha teaches that happiness comes from our positive thoughts and actions and unhappiness comes from negative thoughts and actions. When we deeply understand the law of karma, from non-virtue comes suffering and from virtue comes happiness, we can confidently create our own happiness and help others do the same.
Instead of blaming our other people, our circumstances, we can learn respond with a positive mind to all challenges and difficulties and generate our own happiness.
Join us for a four-class series and learn to generate your own happiness.
1. Where does happiness come from?
2. Understanding Karma
3. Creating Causes with Confidence
4. Changing our Perspective
Each class is a stand-alone class that is part of a series. You do not need to attend the full series to benefit from these classes.
These classes are based on the books The Mirror of Dharma with Additions and The New Eight Steps to Happiness. Come and along and learn how to make your life deeply meaningful. Everyone is welcome to join us for Sunday meditation in September.
You are also welcome to join us for this class on Sunday afternoons at 2:3pm.
Generally, karma means ‘action’. From non-virtuous actions comes suffering and from virtuous actions comes happiness: if we believe this, we believe in karma.
~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso — from Mirror of Dharma With Additions
