humble virtue vs arrogant pride

Mar 7 – Apr 18

Time: 7:00 – 8:15pm

Due to strong attachment to our own views, we immediately experience the inner problem of unpleasant feelings when someone opposes them. This causes us to become angry, which leads to arguments and conflicts with others.  All that happens is that we develop a highly distorted, self-important view of ourself, and an arrogant, disrespectful attitude towards others.

During this series, Kelsang Khacho will explore  with us the advantages of humility and how it enables us to learn from everyone.

Everyone is welcome!

Who we are, who we can become.

Do you feel you have been the exact same person your entire life? Or is it more accurate to say that there have been many versions of you throughout the years, or even throughout today?

Buddha’s Tantric teachings and meditations are all about taking charge of our own identity and steering it in meaningful directions. By imagining ourself as more loving, more compassionate and more wise we can break out of the prison of our own mundane appearances and ideas, and awaken our vast potential for happiness. Through special Tantric methods we can develop both our wisdom and our compassion until they produce a bliss so powerful that it completely purifies our mind and we quickly attain enlightenment.

In this series, you will learn what Tantra is, why we need it and how to practise it for yourself.

Authentic Happiness

May 23 – Jun 13

Time: 7:00 – 8:15pm 

Cost: $15 per session or $48 for the full series (free for supporting members) 

In his poem, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, Bodhisattva Shantideva, a great Buddhist Master, wrote:

All the happiness there is in the world arises from wishing others to be happy,

and all the suffering there is in this world arises from wishing ourself to be happy.

In writing this, Shantideva challenges our way of thinking. His wisdom in this quote is the opposite of how we think. In this series, we will challenge our normal way of thinking and learn to identify our self-centred mind in our own experience. We will then look at the disadvantages of this deluded mind and how this way of thinking sabotages our search for happiness. By following Shantideva’s advice, we will learn how to develop a mind that creates true happiness.

May 23: Defining the self-centred mind
