The Path to Inner Peace:
Introduction to Buddhism
Wednesdays 7 – 8:15pm
In this drop in class, you will receive commentary and guided meditations from the book Introduction to Buddhism, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Beginning with Buddha’s life story, this concise guide explains the essential elements of the Buddhist way of life, such as understanding the mind, rebirth, karma and ultimate truth, and what it means to be a Buddhist. Meditation is explained clearly and simply as a tool for developing qualities such as inner peace, love and patience. The emphasis throughout is on the practical application of Buddhist ideas and practice to find solutions to everyday problems. Those interested in Buddhism and meditation will find this book a rich source of guidance and inspiration.
Each class includes guided meditations, teachings based on the book, and discussion. Since these Drop-In classes are designed both as a series and as stand-alone classes, you are welcome to attend each week or at any time. No need to attend from the start of the book. Registration is not required and no prior experience or commitment is needed.
