Modern Buddhism: Why we need to practise Dharma

Wednesdays: August 19, 26 – 18.30 to 20.30
with Kadam Tim

After the summer break, we will begin a new section of our study of the book “Modern Buddhism”. As a preparation for this, in the first two of our Wednesday classes we will explore the question of why we need to practise Buddha’s teachings, known as ‘Dharma’. These classes will act as an introduction and foundation for the classes this term.

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.
