Event description
Learn about three powerful Buddhist practices and find your peace and bliss from within. Everyone is welcome!

About this event

Due to the uncontrolled desirous attachment in our mind, we have very little real mental freedom. When we don't get what we want, or experience something unpleasant, we easily become unhappy, discouraged and distracted. But this painful mental habit can be reversed.

In these classes, Gen Rinzin will teach from the book Introduction to Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. The teachings will investigate three of the six practices known as "perfections": the perfections of effort, concentration, and wisdom. These practices completely overcome our discouragement, distraction and confusion, replacing them with joyous effort, meditative power, and a method to see through problems with great wisdom. Practicing these new mental habits sincerely leads us toward pure happiness and, eventually, to the bliss of full enlightenment.
