Living Lightly In the Moment

Thursday Meditation Class
7 – 8:30pm

The purpose of our Thursday evening class is to deepen our experience of emptiness – the ultimate nature of reality – through meditation. Buddha taught that in order to become permanently free from suffering, we need to eradicate its cause, self grasping ignorance from our mind. Through contemplating and meditating on Buddha’s wisdom teachings again and again with an open mind, we can gain the wisdom to cut through our ignorance giving rise to our experience of suffering.  In this way we can experience an inner freedom and bring a new clarity and lightness to our life and personality that will bring happiness and benefit to both ourself and others.

The things that I normally see in dreams do not exist.
This proves that the things that I normally see while awake do not exist,
Since both of these things are equally mistaken appearance.
I will never grasp at the things that I normally see,
But just be satisfied with their mere name.
By doing this I will liberate myself permanently
From the sufferings of this life and countless future lives.
In this way I will be able
To benefit each and every living being every day.
