Modern Buddhism: Training in Affectionate Love
Wednesdays: September 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 – 18.30 to 20.30
with Kadam Tim
Affectionate love is a mind that feels warm and close to others. In this month’s Modern Buddhism classes we will explore ways of thinking that change the way we relate to others, so that we can feel warm-hearted and close to more people, and improve our relationship to people we are already close to.
Buddha taught clear techniques for developing our mind of love to include more and more people. And as the mind of love has no physical boundaries, we can learn to feel warm-hearted and close to others whether we are physically with them or not.
About Modern Buddhism classes
In our regular Wednesday classes, we are learning about how to apply Buddha’s teachings in modern daily life. The basis for the teachings come from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s book Modern Buddhism. A hard copy of this book can be purchased at the Centre, or you can download a free digital version here..
The classes include teachings and discussions together with both chanted and guided meditations. No previous experience of Buddhism or meditation is needed. We sit on regular chairs and no special clothing is needed. Everyone is welcome and anyone can benefit from these teachings regardless of nationality, culture, background, gender or age. Doors open 30 minutes before the class starts and tea is served.
The focus of the classes this term are teachings and meditations on how to develop the minds of universal love and compassion.
