Living Lightly
Mondays | 7 - 8:30pm

With Gen Kelsang Lingpur

$15 | Free for members​

Buddha’s most profound teachings explain that to live lightly we need to understand how things really exist. At the moment, we grasp onto our problems and difficulties as being so solid and real that this can cause us to experience fear and suffering. Once we relax our tight hold on things through these profound teachings, meditations and mindfulness we can live our lives more peacefully and cope with difficulties and problems more easily.

Why Me? A Buddhist Perspective on Karma


Everybody wants to be happy and free from problems; these are our two basic wishes. However, due to lacking wisdom understanding karma, we misidentify the actual causes of suffering and remain trapped in a cycle of pain and dissatisfaction. By applying Buddha’s teachings on karma, we can discover the key to our own happiness and unlock our own potential for permanent freedom. This series is a perfect introduction to the Buddha’s teachings on cause and effect.
