Family Friendly Teaching with Geshe Tenley - Patience
Posted Apr 16 2018 12:00:00pm

Saturday, April 21 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

All ages are welcome from infants to teens!

Join us for some family friendly dharma in the gompa. Together with other parents and little ones, delight in the precious background noise of munching, fidgeting and chatter of little voices. This is a wonderful opportunity for both parents and their children to learn Buddhist wisdom from Geshe Tenley and connect with other families.

Geshela and the family program facilitators will provide a kid friendly teaching with simple explanations and time for questions, games, crafts, and short meditations or mindfulness exercises. Families are invited to stay for refreshments after the talk and get to know each other better after the teaching.

This session will focus on Patience, the third main value from the "What is Buddhism?" And "What are Buddhism's main values?" series. Please see the calendar for additional series dates.

It would be great, but not required if you could please RSVP to Stacey or Tara if you would be able to join us so we can plan the gompa set up and refreshments.

Wednesday Evening Classes with Geshe Tenley: Commentary on Je Tsongkhapa's In Praise of Dependent Origination
Posted Feb 26 2018 11:00:00am

Wednesday Evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

In Praise of Dependent Origination by Je Tsongkhapa is considered to be one of the most profound works in Tibetan Buddhism. It addresses the relationship between emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality, and dependent origination, the realization that things do not exist independently from other factors such as causes and conditions. It is said that Je Tsongkhapa composed this poetic text the very morning that he attained the realization of the unity of emptiness and dependent origination.

The study of dependent origination is considered the "king of logic," enabling us to understand how the doctrine of emptiness is compatible with our common experience of the world.
