Friends of the World

Becoming friends of the world: to live in a peaceful, friendly world, we have to first become friends of the world.

“Love is the real nuclear bomb that destroys our enemies.” (Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, 2003). In this course we will explore the profound love and wisdom that underpins these simple words, training ourselves in the many aspects of the kind heart of love.  Learn powerful practices that transform these words into a practical reality accessible to all.

Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Live, Chapter 7

Through understanding and practicing Buddha’s teachings on bodhichitta, the mind of enlightenment, we can develop a powerfully joyful and loving heart which we can use to heal our own suffering and the suffering of others around us.

In this course, we will hear profound but practical teachings on this supremely altruistic mind, how to develop it inside in our heart through meditation and daily practice, and how to become a friend to the world who affects everyone they meet in the best possible way.
