Public Talk: Buddhist Solutions for Difficult Times

We can see for ourselves that despite all our efforts to solve our problems, there is no less suffering in the world today, and there are no fewer problems. In recent years our knowledge of modern technology has increased considerably, but there has not been a corresponding increase in happiness or decrease in suffering or problems. Buddha’s teachings clarify why this is so and show us why, if we seek real happiness and solutions to our own and others’ problems, we must improve the quality of our mind.
Buddhist teachings give us scientific methods to do exactly that.
On Thursday April 7, renowned Buddhist Teacher Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, will be coming to Vancouver for a special 90 minute talk. During the talk he will share how to follow the methods to solve our own and others’ problems and fill our lives with meaning and purpose.
