Everyday karma (online)

Mondays: Mar 1,8,15,22,29 – 18.30 to 20.00
with Kadam Tim

The word “karma” has entered our everyday language. But what does it mean, actually? We may also have heard or the “Law of Karma” – but what is it and when does it apply?

In these Monday classes, which includes teachings, meditations, discussion and mindfulness practice, we will explore karma – and most importantly how we can apply our new understanding in everyday life – and thereby create the life that we want.

Small everyday actions are important. Through improving our understanding of karma, and through gradually building our meditation and mindfulness practice – we can actually transform our everyday life quickly and reap good results.

The classes will consist of live guided meditations and instructions. There will also be opportunities to ask questions. Everyone is welcome and no previous experience is necessary.

About these online classes

Due to the ongoing health risk situation, there are no in-person classes at the moment. Instead, we will live-stream the classes from the Centre.

To attend a class, please book a ticket below before 18.00 on the day of the class. We will send you a link to the class at the latest 20 minutes before the class starts. We use the Zoom service for our classes.

The classes include teachings, discussion and guided meditations. No previous experience of meditation is needed. Everyone is welcome, buddhist and non-buddhist alike and anyone can benefit from these teachings regardless of nationality, culture, background, gender or age.

Lineage of these instructions

The meditation practices we teach come from an unbroken lineage of instructions that go back to the teachings of Buddha, over 2500 years ago. They are timeless instructions that are very relevant for developing and maintaining a peaceful mind in today’s world.

Teachings for these classes will be drawn from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s books “How to Transform Your Life” and “How to Solve our Human Problems”. Hard copies of both books can be purchased at the Centre. A digital version of the latter is available here available here, and a digital version the former can be download for free here.


The Joyful Path of Good Fortune (online)

Wednesdays: Mar 3,10,27,24,31 – 18.30 to 20.30
with Kadam Tim

Once every 3 or 4 years we begin a new Foundation Program Study Group. This is happening this month and we will begin to study the book – Joyful Path of Good Fortune, by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Foundation Program is one of the 3 study programs that are offered by Kadampa Centres around the world. It is an on-going, structured program, with a consistent group of people, who week by week study a particular Buddhist text and commentary, building up their knowledge of Buddhism and how to apply it in daily life.

Anyone with a strong interest in using Buddhist approach to personal transformation is welcome to enrol on the Foundation Program. There are regular opportunities to join the Study Group throughout the year.

It is also possible to join the Foundation Program “by correspondence” which means that you will receive recordings on the classes if you cannot attend “live” on Wednesdays.

Unlike our other classes, the Foundation Program is not a “drop-in” class. There is an enrolment process. Everyone is welcome, buddhist and non-buddhist alike and anyone can benefit from these teachings regardless of nationality, culture, background, gender or age.

About the book “Joyful Path of Good Fortune”

The book we are studying is “Joyful Path of Good Fortune” by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

This inspiring book provides a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to understanding and practicing the Buddhist path to enlightenment. It is the condensation of all Buddha’s teachings into one volume.

Through studying this book, we learn how to practice Buddha’s teachings in everyday life – to practically improve our mind, our wisdom and compassion. We can learn how to be happy now, create the causes for future happiness and how we can attain liberation and enlightenment ourself.

The book presents what is known as “Lamrim” – the stages of the path to enlightenment. Through understanding Lamrim we can know where we are on our spiritual journey, and build a storehouse of Buddha’s wisdom in our mind so we always know what we need to practise in any given situation.
