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

Rather than feeling insecure, fearful, lazy, angry, depressed, etc., we all want to be more confident, courageous, happy, creative and so forth. But we find it difficult actually to change ourselves and to bring about the changes we long for in our life. Buddha’s teachings on the practice of joyful effort help us to understand what it is we need to change as well as giving us the confidence and skill to bring the desired changes about. Through applying these methods we can begin to have the joyful and meaningful life we all long for.

Next Series: A Life of Inspiration

Through meditation we learn how to tap into a natural reservoir of peace and happiness within our own mind. Through this we can connect to an even more bountiful source of energy and inspiration, the energy of enlightenment itself, that is the actual nature of reality.
In this series we will learn how through meditation we can harness the energy of enlightenment. In this way we can experience a life of inspiration. We can call upon this deeper wisdom and energy in every facet of our life, but in particular to help us develop spiritually and become the person we really wish to be.
These talks and guided meditations will be based around a commentary to Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s beautiful prayer, The Liberating Prayer. Everyone is welcome.
