Two Half-Day workshops on consecutive Saturdays June 15 and 22 with Gen Kelsang Tilopa
This Two-Day program is an excellent introduction to the complete path of Buddhist teachings. You will come to understand how to transform every moment of your life into a step on the path to lasting inner peace, and in particular how to transform all of life’s difficulties into truly liberating experiences.
You will learn the essential practices of the complete inner path to lasting happiness and peace. You will receive teachings and guided meditations based on the commentary to one of Buddhism’s best-loved and most enduring texts, “Eight Steps to Happiness”, by Ven Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This text shows how all our problems originate from a deeply ingrained tendency to cherish oneself more than others. Overcoming this view will naturally lead us to become the best we can be.
In the June 15 workshop, Gen Tilopa will explain simple methods to eradicate this damaging self-important perspective and replace it with a genuine wish to cherish and love others – the source of all goodness and happiness in this world. From this precious mind of love, compassion for others’ suffering naturally arises. And from the mind of compassion arises the superior intention to help everyone find their own happiness and freedom from suffering. This superior intention is the inner force that motivates everyone to become the best they can be and experience the pure and lasting joy of inner peace.
In the June 22 workshop Gen Tilopa will give teachings and guide meditations that show how it is possible for anyone to attain the supreme inner peace of full enlightenment. From the great mind of superior intention arises the realization that to fulfill this wish to lead others to lasting inner peace it is necessary to attain the ultimate goal of this human life, enlightenment. Gen Tilopa will explain how this is possible and lead meditations that will show how the seeds of wisdom in your own heart will ripen and develop into the extraordinary mind of enlightenment.
