Join us for a special weekend course with visiting Buddhist monk, Gen Samten Kelsang as we receive inspiring teachings and guided meditations on the book How to Transform Your Life by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
This course gives us the opportunity to meditate deeply on the very essence of Buddha’s teachings through the guidance of an experienced teacher. Gen Samten will also grant Bodhisattva vows, the gateway through which we enter the Mahayana path and progress towards the attainment of full enlightenment for the benefit of all living beings.
Through contemplating these precious instructions and practicing them daily, we can transform our life, bringing positive change to our relationships, workplace, and community. Ultimately, creating the experience of deep and lasting happiness for everyone.
