Life & Death: An Indispensable Buddhist Perspective

In this series, we will focus on the Buddhist perspective of the true meaning of life and death. Using this understanding and awareness inspires us to a more meaningful and joyful life. Lamrim meditations on life and death help us prioritize the aspects of our life that matter most, giving us great confidence and direction.

These classes are based on the book Modern Buddhism, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, available as a free ebook here.

Become Your Own Protector

Sundays at 10:30am - 12pm
February 7-28

Become Your Own Protector

Our mind has tremendous power to either help or harm us. Through practicing Buddhist refuge, we gradually become our own protector, instead of our own worst enemy, building strong habits of peace, joy and freedom within our own heart which we can then share with others. 

Buddhist refuge means we find spiritual protection in our mind through relying upon the “Three Jewels” of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. This spiritually adventurous 4-week course will take you on a tour of your own mental continuum, reincarnation, and enlightened beings.
