How to Transform Your Life

Developing Wisdom and Compassion

What does it actually mean to transform your life? The way we experience our life depends upon the states of mind we have moment to moment. If we learn to gain control of our mind through the practice of meditation, we can definitely transform all of our daily life experiences, whether seemingly good or bad, into a path that leads to deep inner peace and well being.
In these classes, learn how to solve your problems by responding with wisdom, patience and compassion.


ABOUT THE BOOKS

How to Transform Your Life
A practical manual for daily life that shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, how we can reduce and stop our experience of problems, and how we can bring about positive changes in our lives that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness. This is a significantly revised edition of one of Venerable Geshe Kelsang's most popular and accessible books.

The Mirror of Dharma
Dharma means the teachings of enlightened beings — gives practical advice on how we can solve our daily problems of uncontrolled desire, anger and ignorance, and how to make our human life meaningful.

The author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, is an internationally renowned meditation master and scholar. In this book, he explains as practical instructions the complete path to enlightenment, based on his deep experience gained from a lifetime spent in meditation.

With this new edition, the author has added inspiring heartfelt advice on how to engage successfully in daily meditation, as well as instructions that clarify important aspects of spiritual practice.

Modern Buddhism
This book reveals how to build a foundation for the spiritual path, how to progress on that path and how to complete it. With compassion and wisdom we can solve all our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life, and like two wings of a bird they will enable us to reach enlightenment quickly.

An inspiring handbook of daily practice that is perfectly suited for those seeking solutions within Buddhism, as well as for encouraging practitioners of all faiths to deepen their understanding and practice of the spiritual path.

These books can be purchased from our bookstore. Please contact our Treasurer, Brian Worthen, for details: 505-999-8656. They can also be purchased online at Tharpa.com.


CLASS STRUCTURE

Each class includes guided meditations, teaching, and time for Q&A (not available for online-only classes). A brief introduction of the topic will be presented followed by a guided meditation to settle the mind, the main teaching, and a closing guided meditation.

The main teaching will cover the class topic. It includes an explanation of Buddhist practices and methods to apply them to your daily life through meditation, contemplation, and effort. Reference to particular pages in books may be offered. It is not necessary to have the coursebook in order to benefit, but you may find it helpful. Further reading is always encouraged.

Each teaching ends with another guided meditation specifically to help students take the teaching to heart and be able to begin to practice on their own what they’ve learned in class.
