With KMC Phoenix Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Tabkay
$10 per class; free for members
All classes are now in-person only. No need to pre-register, just drop in!
The Stages of the Path (Tibetan: Lamrim) meditations have been one of the essential daily practices for Kadampa Buddhists for nearly 1000 years. This special presentation of meditation contains the essential meaning of all Buddha’s teachings. These meditations have innumerable benefits, including helping to develop our inner peace, wisdom, and eventual attainment of enlightenment.
This special Tuesday night meditation class will include a brief explanation of one of the 15 lamrim meditations explained in Mirror of Dharma with additions, Prayers for Meditation, and guided Lamrim meditation. Everyone is welcome.
“The practice of Lamrim is very important because everyone needs to cultivate peaceful states of mind. By listening to or reading these teachings we can learn how to control our mind and always keep a good motivation in our heart. This will make all our daily actions pure and meaningful. By controlling our mind we can solve all our daily problems, and by gradually improving our daily practice of Lamrim we can advance from our present stage to the stage of a Bodhisattva. By progressing further we can become a fully enlightened being. This is the essential meaning of our human life. Such a great attainment will be the result of our practice of Lamrim.”
