FREE INTRODUCTORY CLASS - THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 6:30-8:30pm
Please join us for an introductory talk to find out more about our systematic and specially-designed study program, the Foundation Program offered at Heruka Kadampa Buddhist Center.
In this introductory class, you will learn about the purpose and benefits of the Foundation Program, the structure and commitments of the class, and receive an overview of the book to be studied, Joyful Path of Good Fortune. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions in the class. Everyone is welcome!
We will be beginning a new section of Joyful Path of Good Fortune, in which we study Buddha’s unique and moving meditations on Death, Rebirth, Buddhist Refuge and the Laws of Karma.
In the Foundation Program, we engage in the systematic study of key Buddhist texts in order to gain a deep and lasting understanding and experience of the spiritual path, as well as an authentic confidence as a meditator and practitioner. These study classes also help us to become part of a community of practitioners who are sincerely putting the teachings into practice.
With weekly reading assignments from the text, as well as commentary, discussions and meditations on the week’s readings, these study classes create the conditions for us to develop deep inner experience of the teachings.
ABOUT THE BOOK - JOYFUL PATH OF GOOD FORTUNE
The Path to the Supreme Happiness of Enlightenment
We all have the potential for self-transformation, and a limitless capacity for the growth of good qualities. But to fulfill this potential we need to know what to do at every stage of our journey.
In Joyful Path of Good Fortune we find a clear and comprehensive explanation of the entire path to enlightenment, presented in the practical sequence known as Kadam Lamrim.
With this book, the author Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
offers us step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will
lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness.
With extraordinary clarity, he presents all Buddha’s teachings in the
order in which they are to be practiced, enriching his explanation with
stories and illuminating analogies.
This book is a perfect guidebook to the Buddhist path.
