Finding Real Refuge

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Coming under the Umbrella of Buddhism
with Kadampa Buddhist Nun & Teacher Kelsang Khacho

We usually try to find stability and protection from unpleasant feelings by surrounding ourselves with people and things that make us feel safe, happy and comfortable. Unfortunately, people and things eventually let us down. They are impermanent and do not have the power to provide what we really want in our heart of hearts: permanent freedom and protection from all suffering and problems.

In this half-day course, we will look at how only the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma and Sangha – are truly reliable objects of refuge, possessing the power to protect us permanently from all the sufferings of this life and our countless future lives. Through the practice of going for refuge, we will be able to enter into Buddhism, gradually developing a stable sense of peace, joy and freedom within our hearts. This unchangeable mind will then give us the strength to make authentic spiritual progress.

This class is a perfect introduction for the Refuge Meditation Retreat that follows, from Saturday, April 20 in the afternoon, to Friday, April 26 in the evening. Bookings for this retreat are made separately.
