SPECIAL BUDDHIST TALK IN ALBUQUERQUE
Reflections on Karma
Paving the path to happiness
with guest teacher, Gen Kelsang Menla
In life, there is a single underlying pursuit that we all have—to be happy and not to suffer. Regardless of the many ways in which we go about trying to achieve this, the bottom line is: we want things to go our way, we don’t want problems, and we want happy endings. In truth, however, we don’t really know how to accomplish this basic goal. Fortunately, Buddha taught a way. It’s called the law of karma.
Through understanding karma, we can begin to shape the life we truly wish for—one free from suffering and filled with peace and joy. Karma means ‘action’ and refers to the actions of our body, speech, and mind. Every action we perform leaves an imprint, or potentiality, on our very subtle mind, and each imprint eventually gives rise to its own effect.
Because the law of karma is universal, it applies to everyone. As such, each and every one of us has the ability to erase the negative karma in our lives and begin to sow the seeds of positive karma.
In this special talk, learn how to protect yourself from future suffering and begin to pave the path to future happiness. Whether you are new to meditation or have experience already, everyone can benefit from this spiritual knowledge.
This special talk is led by guest teacher, Gen Kelsang Menla, Kadampa buddhist monk and Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Texas.
