Term 2 from Sunday 18 April
Our two main classes about Buddhist philosophy and meditation are on Sundays.
At 1.30pm there is an introduction series. A new eight-week course commences on Sunday 18 April at 1.30pm with Tim McKibben and Angela Scherma. Click here for more information.
The series is called Inner Knowledge, the Key to a Joyful Life. Here is a link to all the details. You can join the courses at the temple (address below) or via YouTube – Tibetan Buddhist Society YouTube channel
The other Sunday class is the Path to Enlightenment series at 4pm. This class is generally for people who have attended an introduction series, although anyone is welcome. This class will resume on Sunday 18 April at 4pm. Click here for more information.
The graduated path to enlightenment is the basis of both our Sunday classes – based on books by the great scholar and our founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden. The difference between these two classes is that one is an introduction to the graduated path to enlightenment and Buddhist meditation, and the second at 4pm goes through the graduated path to enlightenment in much more detail.
Each week covers a different topic across the full range of Buddhist topics such as love, compassion, impermanence, karma, bodhichitta, the six perfections such as ethics, generosity, concentration and how to deal with anger and develop patience. Each session includes a talk, one or two guided meditations and an opportunity for questions.
Here is the link to the 4pm Path to Enlightenment class information.
Classes are offered free of charge. If you would like to make a donation for the classes, you can click here. More information about the sessions below.
