What is true love? Is it just an ideal or is it something we can realistically experience? According to the ancient wisdom and practice of Buddha, true love is not something we ‘fall’ into. It’s a beautiful state of being that we cultivate through training the mind. This series of talks and guided meditations will take us on a step-by-step journey into the profound, expansive and joyful mind of love. By actually mixing our mind with true love in deep meditation, and then carrying that experience with us in our daily life, all our relationships will become more meaningful and harmonious, and we will discover within ourselves something extraordinary – our capacity for true, unconditional and universal love.
These classes are based on an ancient Kadampa Buddhist text called, Training in the Mind in Seven Points, according to the modern Buddhist commentary contained in Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s wonderful book, Universal Compassion.
