6/23 topic: “Stop Drinking Seawater”


In Person at KMC LA.    *Livestream for KMC LA members at the Member Portal

Good advice can be hard to come by. In spiritually degenerate times, and a confusing age of information, it can be difficult to know what voices to listen to, and which to ignore.

Atisha is the founder of Kadampa Buddhism; a sage, kind-hearted teacher, who many considered a fully enlightened being, he gave a final teaching to the people of Tibet before returning to India. This advice came to be known as “Advice from Atisha’s Heart.”

In this course, we will explore this beautiful, timeless advice, that is as relevant today as it was when it was delivered. This advice is reliable, helping us to understand our own mind, and a compass for directing us towards a life of hope and meaning.

No meditation experience needed – Everyone is invited to drop in to any or all sessions in this series

About Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA

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

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 is 1.5 hours and consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. 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.
