THE PHILOSOPHY OF HAPPINESS  led by Geshe Lobsang Thinley – on the first and third Saturday in the month – 5pm to 6:30pm – with a short Tara puja. 

A review of the teachings with meditation is shared on the fourth Saturday in the month at 5pm.

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.  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 with a wide variety of Buddhiost books and some DVDs to borrow.
