Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems, learn to help others, and we can make our human life meaningful.
Our Sunday drop-in meditation classes include guided meditations and a teaching on a Buddhist topic based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s writings and commentaries. In these classes, we can learn and practice essential meditation techniques, reduce stress, and gradually learn how to reduce our own and others suffering.
