Modern Buddhism

with Gen Kelsang Jigme

Thursday Evenings 7-8:30pm

July 11th – What is a true spiritual path?

July 18th – Permanent freedom from suffering is possible

Modern Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings on compassion and wisdom that communicates their essence in a way that is easy to understand and put into practice.

By developing and maintaining compassion and wisdom in daily life, we can transform our lives, improve our relationships with others and look behind appearances to see the way things actually exist. In this way we can solve all our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life.

Each week, our Resident Teacher and Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Jigme will teach from this inspiring handbook of daily practice that is perfectly suited for those seeking solutions to the problems of everyday life, as well as for encouraging practitioners of all faiths to deepen their understanding and practice of the spiritual path.

Everyone is welcome.
