Introduction to Buddhist Meditation
Saturday, June 29 with guest teacher
In our ever-accelerating world, many of us are looking for a place of peace…both in our hearts and in our environment.
This e-book is being distributed freely at the request of the author, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.About Our Classes
Taught by qualified Western teachers, the meditation classes are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced meditation practitioners, and emphasize how to meditate and practice in our NY urban environment.
Meditation is a simple yet profound method to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace. Through following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to let go of the causes of our pain and dissatisfaction and to gain the inner peace and clarity we seek. We offer a wide range of classes from basic introductions to Buddhist meditation, applying Buddha’s teachings to daily life issues such as anger and improving relationships, to comprehensive study programs of Buddhist view, meditation and action. Everyone is welcome.
