How to Relax the Mind on May 18, 2019

This class is open to all levels of meditators and is taught by Khenpo Sherab Sangpo. Our last class in this series will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 PM on Saturday, May 18, 2019.

Please arrive by 1:45 PM and take your seat by 2:00 PM in the shrine room.

Topic: Khenpo Sherab Sangpo, a professor of Tibetan Buddhism in the Nyingma Lineage, offers teachings on how to relax and rest in the nature of mind. This ultimate wisdom, our buddha nature, is innate and natural to everyone, but temporarily covered by delusion and confusion. If we break through confusion, we can relax our mind, and with wisdom, we can solve all of our problems. To do this, we need discipline (the method), meditation (the path), and wisdom (the goal).
