THE PHILOSOPHY OF HAPPINESS led by Geshe Lobsang Thinley – on the first and third Saturday in the month – 5pm to 6:30pm – starting with a short Tara puja.
NOTE: The next teaching is on Saturday 3rd November.
There will be a discussion session and meditation on Saturday 20th October instead of Geshe-las visit.
Geshe-la (Lobsang Thinley) studied in the Gelukpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism (dating back to 14th Century). He gained a high degree as Doctor of Philosophy (Lharampa Geshe) at the Drepung Monastic University in South India. This tradition practices a specific, systematic path to enlightenment – freedom from suffering – a lofty goal. But the practices are presented here on Saturdays to ponder, digest and discuss how to use Tibetan 14th Century tools in a modern Western environment!
Geshe Thinley is known well for his contagious light-hearted cheerfulness.
These talks are free and open to all (no experience necessary) with refreshments offered before and afterwards.
There is also a library and book-shop to browse, with a current sale on some books.
