Geshe KelsanThe first step toward changing our mind is to identify which states of mind produce happiness and which produce suffering. In Buddhism, states of mind that are conducive to peace and happiness are called ‘virtuous minds’, while those that disturb our peace and cause us suffering are called ‘delusions’.

Buddha’s Enlightenment Day – April 15th
April 15th marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni demonstrating the attainment of enlightenment in 589 B.C.E. This is an extremely important day in the Buddhist calendar because our actions are 100,000 times more powerful than on other days.
The Vajradhara Mahayana Buddhist Center (Vajradhara Center) teaches Meditation and Buddhist practices to help everyone solve their daily problems and cultivate inner peace. While these practical teachings come from an unbroken lineage of teacher to disciple, dating back over 2500 years to the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, they are highly relevant, proven scientific methods that are easily applied to modern Western society.
No prior experience in Meditation or Buddhism is necessary. There are no sign-ups or commitments for our drop-in classes. People from all faiths and all walks of life can benefit greatly by incorporating regular meditation practices into their daily lives. Everyone is welcome!
More information about our Tradition can be found here.
