Sundays @ 10:15 am | Minneapolis
Khenpo Sherab Sangpo will give profound, yet practical meditation instructions, on how to turn our minds towards cultivating compassion and loving-kindness in daily life via Lojong, Buddhist teachings on mind training.

Khenpo Sherab Sangpo will guide us in combining calm abiding (shamatha) with penetrative insight (vipashyana) meditation. As our minds become more tranquil, we are able to lessen conceptual thoughts that block us from seeing the nature of reality. Join us to experience resting meditation that gives rise to a peaceful mind filled with equanimity and joy!
Penetrative insight joined with calm abiding
Utterly eradicates afflicted states.
Knowing this, first search for calm abiding,
Found by those who joyfully renounce the world.
