The Wisdom to Know How to Transform Your Life

Thursdays 6:30-8:00pm

This ongoing series will be based on the teachings from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s latest book and Free Download: How to Transform Your Life   

In this series of classes we will explore this ancient wisdom that completely accords with modern daily life. As he teaches in this book, “Through practicing the instructions given by Buddha we can transform our life from a state of misery into one of pure and everlasting happiness”. These instructions are scientific methods to improve our human nature. In our outer world of  political, economical, educational , and environmental crisis we need some inner protection.  Everybody needs to be good natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and make our life meaningful.

Every living being has the same basic wish – to be happy and avoid suffering. Even new born babies, animals and insects have this wish. It has been our main wish since beginningless time and it is with us all the time, even during our sleep. We spend our whole life working hard to fulfill this wish. If we check deeply we know this is true. Yet, we have not fully accomplished this.  If we learn to use our human life to accomplish inner protection, inner peace and true happiness, regardless of external conditions we can make our human life immensely meaningful and begin to actualize our full potential.  What could be more meaningful?

Join us to explore this profound and relevant wisdom. Drop-in !
