      buddhacard.jpgFollowing Lama Zopa Rinpoche's Instructions on How to Practice:
      Sessions including the preparatory practices, contemplations on the stages of the path, and meditation on Shakyamuni Buddha.
      With Ven Drimay
      Aug 3, 10 from 10 – 11am

      Khensur Jampa Tegchog has explained to us the meaning of the text "The Foundation of All Good Qualities." Now let's meditate on it. This text is part of the practice compiled by Lama Zopa Rinpoche--based on ancient advice--called "A Daily Meditation Practice on Guru Shakyamuni Buddha." etc. etc.


      Atisha.jpgThe legacy of Atisha: Origins of Thought Transformation
      By Jon Landaw
      Sundays, Aug 3, 10 at 11.15am

      One thousand years ago the great Indian master Atisha was invited to reintroduce Buddhism into Tibet after the devastating persecution it had suffered at the hands of King Langdarma. Atisha spent the last 17 years of his life in Tibet and his followers there became known as the Kadampa Geshes, or Spiritual Friends of the Kadam Tradition. It was through these outstanding spiritual masters that Atisha’s special Training of the Mind (or Lo-jong) teachings were passed down to succeeding generations of practitioners.

       

      This brief two-week class will introduce students to the life and teachings of Atisha and some of the main Kadampa Geshes. Although it can be taken as a stand-alone course, it is particularly recommended for those planning on attending Ven Robina Courtin’s weekend retreat, August 15-17 at LMB, on one of the most famous of all the Lo-jong texts: the Eight Verses of Thought Training by the Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa.

      Eight Verses of Thought Training
      With Venerable Robina Courtin
      Friday evening through Sunday noon, Aug 15 – 17

      Buddhism teaches that all happiness and suffering come not from outside circumstances, but from the mind. These teachings in eight verses gives us tools to overcome our negative habitual tendences of anger, greed and selfishness and deal with difficult situations. A teaching for developing compassion for a courageous mind, it gives us confidence and motivation to get going when the going gets tough!
