Kadam Morten, National Spiritual Director& Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center New York City

In Buddhist practice we are asked to consider the question, ‘Who am I?’ And also, ‘What do I seek?’

Without clear answers to these questions it is difficult to accomplish anything with our life, whether it be external goals, such as career and relationships, or internal ones, such as happiness, or becoming the person we wish to be.

In this series of talks and guided meditations, we will get to explore these questions for ourselves, and discover the surprising answers they will give rise to.

When we align our intentions and actions with a clear sense of our potential, amazing accomplishments will arise. The power of intention can take us to wonderful experiences or terrible ones. It has taken some people to the moon and some to enlightenment. Where it will take us depends on how we direct it.
