Our Tuesday Meditation Class

21 Meditations
Online and Onsite
7- 8:30pm
with Kadampa Buddhist nun, Gen Kelsang Kunden

Join us on Tuesday evenings with our Tuesday Meditation Class: “21 Meditations.”  These twenty-one meditations are a condensation of all Buddha’s teachings – presented by the Indian Buddhist master Atisha when he taught in Tibet over a thousand years ago.  They are known as the Lamrim or the “Stages of the Path to Enlightenment”. These meditations encompass the entire Mahayana Buddhist path. Meditating and contemplating on Lamrim is a practical method to transform our mind from negative to positive, to grow our supreme good heart and inner wisdom,  and to solve our own and others’ problems. If we gain deep experience of Lamrim, there will be no basis for problems; we shall be completely free of them.

In each Tuesday meditation class, we will engage in one Lamrim 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 that specific Lamrim teaching. 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.

Drop-in: $12 (online or onsite). Series Pass: $40 for any 4 classes.
Free for members. Class links are available in members area.

Meditation Class

By joyfully and patiently doing the meditations, we shall gradually experience the fruits of Lamrim practice.

“Meditation is a mind that concentrates on a virtuous object, and that is the main cause of mental peace.”

~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
