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

There is no more revolutionary insight than that of Emptiness, Buddha’s explanation of the true nature of things. It is because of our misunderstanding of reality that we get trapped in the negative minds of anger and uncontrolled desire that creates all of our problems. Therefore, understanding how things actually exist, frees us us from suffering and liberates us to become the joyful and fulfilled person we wish to be. In this series we will dive into this revolutionary insight by exploring the powerful meditations on the emptiness of the body, mind, the self, and eventually all phenomena. Prepare to have your understanding of the world gloriously upended and to have your life infused with a sense happiness, hope and possibility.

 

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.

Everyone welcome.
