Tibetan Buddhist studies
integrating Buddha's teachings into daily practice
These monthly classes are designed to help us integrate the Buddha’s teachings for mindful living into our daily practice. As a Sangha, we will study, meditate upon and discuss a variety of antidotes which can be applied to dissolve our habitual suffering. Whether you are a person with some background in Buddhism, a serious practitioner or just curious, this class may be for you.
We are currently studying The Hundred Verses of Advice, by Dilgo Khyentse and Padampa Sangye.
"When I first became interested in Buddhism, I found it extremely confusing. I jumped from instruction to instruction with no clear idea of what I was doing. Fortunately, I came across many good teachers and eventually I was able to start making sense of it all. However, those years of confusion have never left me, which is why I have written The Best Way to Catch a Snake. I see many people facing the same problems I did, so I sincerely hope that this book will help people along their Buddhist path. The book is a practical guide, and so it is my hope that you will read it carefully, and stop after each section to do the contemplations. This will ensure that the knowledge you gain will be put into practice and not simply remain intellectual." -- Karma Yeshe Rabgye
Join us to read, contemplate, discuss and practice together.
