Modern Buddhism Wednesdays 7.30pm

15th January- 12th February; 26th February – 1st April 2020

Each class is self-contained so you can drop-in at any time. No need to book, just come along, relax and enjoy.

Why do we teach Modern Buddhism?

The meditation we teach at our classes comes originally from the Buddha and has been practised for over 2500 years. In that time the world has changed immeasurably but what hasn’t changed is our search for happiness and contentment in life. Despite the benefits of living in the 21st century we still encounter difficulties, hardship, dissatisfaction and unhappiness.

The classes are based on the Modern Buddhism presented by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This means that you don’t have to be Buddhist to benefit from the classes as they are specifically designed to be accessible to modern people of all backgrounds. All you need is a mind, and the wish to improve it!

The author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says:
“Through reading and practicing the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.”
So that these benefits can pervade the whole world, Geshe Kelsang wishes to give this eBook freely to everyone.
