Sunday Morning Class Series

11am-12pm with Resident Teacher Joe Gauthier

At Lamrim Kadampa Buddhist Center – Davenport

This is an ongoing class series based on the book, “The New Eight Steps to Happiness” by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. This immensely practical book charts a complete path of spiritual development.

As a commentary to one of Buddhism’s best-loved and most enduring teachings, Eight Verses of Training the Mind by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva Langri Tangpa, it explains how to transform every moment of our life into a step on the path to inner peace, and in particular how to transform all of life’s difficulties into truly liberating experiences.

Geshe Kelsang shows how all our problems originate from a deeply ingrained tendency to cherish oneself more than others. He explains simple methods to eradicate this stultifying perspective and replace it with a genuine wish to cherish others – the source of all goodness and happiness in this world.

A different section of the book will be covered each class, and there will be time for meditation and question and answers as well. You do not need to have the book to attend, and each class is self contained so you can drop in to any class you like, or attend the series consecutively.
