John Meditating

“Inner peace will not come as a blessing from above. Inner peace comes from nurturing genuine love and compassion for others. Buddhism teaches us about bringing inner peace through the training of the mind.”

14th Dalai Lama

In preparation of the upcoming teachings by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama on the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation, we are hosting a day retreat on this precious text. We will be using some commentary given by the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi from his recent teaching on the text.

The Eight Verses, derived from the traditional Mahayana Buddhist practice of lojong (mind training), was written by the great  Kadampa Bodhisattva, Geshe Langri Tangpa (AD 1054-1123).

The retreat will be facilitated by John (Chophel) Bruna and will include meditation as well as discussion.
