Free Meditation Classes at The Buddhist Society and online
Starts Thursday 18th January 2024 (no class 15th February 2024)
Thursdays at The Buddhist Society and online at 6.30pm GMT.
The class begins with a meditation, followed by the presentation and discussion of instructions and philosophical topics from a text. For this term, the text we will be following is: A Harmony of Views: Three Songs by Ju Mipham, Changkya Rolpay Dorje, and Chögyam Trungpa, with commentary by Thrangu Rinpoche.
For Buddhists, Enlightenment is not some vague esoteric idea but a precise and attainable goal and success in the achievement of it, like success in any venture, depends upon following the steps laid out by those who have already attained it. These teachings will be presented, discussed and meditated upon in the traditional sequence, as methods for investigating and transforming one's attitudes, developing positive qualities and striving to realise Enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.
