Introduction to Karma

Everybody wants to be happy and free from problems; these are our two basic wishes. However, due to lacking wisdom in understanding karma, we misidentify the actual causes of suffering and remain trapped in a cycle of pain and dissatisfaction. By applying Buddha’s teachings on karma, we can discover the key to our own happiness and unlock our own potential for permanent freedom. This class is a perfect introduction to the Buddha’s teachings on cause and effect and preparation for weekend retreat on purifying negative karma.

Special Course with Kelsang Khacho

In order to improve the power of our meditations, we need to assemble a toolkit of specific mental skills. In this course, we will look at how to prepare properly for meditation, how to engage in analytical meditation to find our object of meditation, how to use mindfulness and alertness to keep our mind focused on the object and how to prevent distractions and dullness from destroying the strength of our meditation. We will also look at simple, yet profound meditations which will help us develop and maintain a peaceful mind.

This retreat consists of a series of guided meditations that increase our love and compassion and deepen our wisdom, making our mind peaceful and our life meaningful.  It is ideal for those who wish to start applying, or perfecting, the meditation techniques learned, and to gain a deeper, transformative meditation experience.
