Change Your Perception

Karma - The Key to Creating Happiness

This class is offered in person only

Because “our world” is really only our personal experience of what we perceive and how we perceive it, Buddha has explained that if we change our mind we change our world. Our experience of the world depends on our state of mind.

At the heart of the Kadampa Buddhist tradition lies a unique arrangement of the key practices and insights of the Buddhist path that will lead us to this crucial shift in awareness and understanding. These meditations, arranged in the order in which they are to be realized, are known as the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, or Lam Rim.

In this course, Change Your Perception, we will journey through these 15 meditations, taking our time to gain a deep experience of each one. We will discover how every one of these meditations produces a profound change in our perception, transforming our experience of the world in the most profound and wonderful way, allowing us to experience our life as full of possibility and joy.

Series 5 – Karma: The Key to Creating Happiness

Understanding Buddha’s teachings on karma and taking them to heart through meditation is truly life-transforming. The teachings on karma enable us to understand why things happen the way they do and what we can begin to do about it. This understanding gives us the power to change our lives and in particular to create the future we desire.

In this series, not only will we learn these extraordinary teachings, but we will focus on how to meditate on them so that they profoundly touch our hearts and impact our lives. This experience is the key to freedom from suffering and creating authentic happiness in our lives. Everyone is welcome.
