3/18 Topic: “How to Live a Meaningful Life: Compassion”

Part of a 9-week series with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Rigpa

Mondays, January 29  – March 25  •  7:30-9:00 pm

This class is In-Person at KMC LA.     Livestream available for members at the Member Portal

Everyone wants to experience meaning and purpose in their life. Without an overarching direction, a compass pointing us toward enrichment, fulfillment and connection, life can easily become boring and monotonous; or, the challenges of life seem overwhelming and become too much to bear.

In this course, Gen Rigpa will explain how the Buddhist path of the “Bodhisattva” provides a perfect framework of views, values, and ideals towards which you can direct your life. You will learn how to train your mind in the Bodhisattva’s way of life – a life of meaning arising from a compassionate wish to reach your full spiritual potential for the benefit of the whole world.

Everyone is welcome to attend the classes in this series. No experience necessary.

Remaining topics in this series:

March 18    Compassion
March 25    Imagination

About Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA

General Program (GP) classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The classes are designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path.

Classes explore the basic framework of Buddhist teachings and meditation and explain how to use Buddha’s advice in our daily lives to solve our problems. All General Program classes are based on commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

A typical class consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. Although classes are given in a series around one specific theme, they are drop-in in nature and can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.

GP classes last approximately 1.5 hours. Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. No special clothing is required, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
