Modern Buddhism

Practical Advice for Applying Meditation to our Lives

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book, Modern Buddhism is the distillation of Geshe Kelsang’s life’s work of bringing Kadampa Buddhism to the contemporary world in an accessible, practical and modern presentation. In this series, Taz will show how to integrate the profound methods of Buddhism into our lives to help us lead more peaceful, joyful, productive, loving, compassionate and meaningful lives.

Through teachings and guided meditations Taz will show us how to connect to our Buddha nature, our potential for enlightenment, and how to actualize this extraordinary potential through the clear and structured path of Modern Buddhism.

Finding True Happiness

Everybody holds the wish to be happy. But what is the method for making it come about? Our conventional world tells us that happiness can be found in relationships, money, pleasure, and distraction. It doesn't take long to learn that all of these can only provide temporary happiness. Buddha taught that to be authentically happy, we need a spiritual path because true happiness can only be found in the mind, not in external objects.

In this series, we will study The New Eight Steps to Happiness, including Eight Verses of Training the Mind, composed by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva Geshe Langri Tangpa. The text includes a complete set of instructions on how to cultivate and maintain true happiness.

This series begins September 6 with Taz Tagore
