CLASS TITLE: “Training the Mind in Daily Activities: Meditation on the Go”

Series Description:

In this busy, chaotic world it is very important for our day to day happiness and peace that we learn how to control our mind. In this course you will learn new ways of thinking to transform the ordinary, daily activities of your life into opportunities for learning and personal growth. This is a practical course designed to show us how to apply simple meditation techniques in the midst of a normal, modern lifestyle.
This course will be based on the text Universal Compassion, a commentary to a powerful and insightful 12th Century meditation text entitled Training the Mind in Seven Points, which was composed by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva Geshe Chekawa.
Everyone is welcome to this course on training the mind; no previous experience of meditation is necessary.

Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA

General Program (GP) classes are drop-in by nature. These 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 can also be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.

Sunday morning classes last approximately 1.5 hours. Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. There is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.

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