Part of a 10-week series  •  Mondays, July 8 – Sept 16  •  7:30-9:00 pm

In-Person at KMC LA + livestream option for members at the Member Portal

Love gives meaning and purpose to our life. Some might say that love is the very essence of a life well-lived. Love is the great protector because it protects us from anger, attachment, jealousy, hatred, selfishness and it makes our mind happy, positive and peaceful.

We all need more love, and we can learn to generate this beautiful state of mind more and more frequently by relying upon Buddha’s timeless meditation techniques presented in the book Modern Buddhism.

Written by the Buddhist master and scholar Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Modern Buddhism is available for everyone to download as a free e-book at this link: Modern Buddhism free e-book

About Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA

General Program (GP) classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The classes are designed for 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.
