Introduction to Lamrim

Wednesday, August 23, 2017
7 – 8:30pm

‘Lamrim’ or ‘stages of the path to enlightenment’ is a series of essential Mahayana Buddhist teachings that we can easily integrate into modern daily lives. Lamrim is the daily practice of Kadampas–practitioners who take Buddha’s teachings as personal advice and put them into practice.  In this introduction, Kelsang Kunden will give an introduction to these meditations and an explanation of how we can practice them in our modern daily lives.

This introduction is preparation for the week-long Lamrim retreat that will begin the next day.  Everyone is welcome to the introduction and also to the retreat sessions that will follow.

$12 a class | Four classes for $40 | Free for Centre card holders

Guided Meditation Retreat

August 24 – 30, 2017
Session times below

Join us on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment retreat! Come to one session, come for a full day or come for the full retreat! A retreat is a wonderful opportunity to improve our wisdom through listening, contemplating, and meditating on meaningful objects.

Each session will consist of a teaching, time for individual reading and contemplation, and a guided meditation and question and answer. Day by day we will progress through the stages of the path from realizing our precious human life to developing the wisdom of superior seeing. Everyone welcome, regardless of background or experience.

No need to pre-register.  Please just drop in. For the first session, we ask people to arrive by 7:20 am.

Please note that the last session on August 25 will be Offering to the Spiritual Guide prayers.

$5 per session | $15 per day | Free for Centre card holders.
