Make Sundays Meaningful:

Advice for Daily Life



“Joy is called a power because it substances our effort in practicing Dharma.”

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Stop Stressing, Start Living

In this series we are going to look at stress from the viewpoint of effort. Effort is a mind that delights in virtue. Maitreya says that effort is supreme amongst virtues because with effort we can attain all good qualities. With effort we can gain all temporary worldly happiness, the bliss of suppleness and all mundane and supra mundane attainments. 

​ The book we will be using in this series is Joyful Path of Good Fortune​.




This ongoing series will be based on the teachings from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s text: Joyful Path of Good Fortune
