July 1 to Aug 12 Transcending the Ordinary

Monday Evening Meditation Classes

Mondays from 7:00 to 8:15 pm, year-round

Gen Kelsang Rinzin, Buddhist monk, Resident Teacher

The Monday Evening Meditation Class takes place every week and is taught by Gen Rinzin, Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Washington. This introduction to meditation and Buddhist psychology covers a variety of topics including how to overcome anger and develop patience, how to increase love and compassion, and how to apply Buddha’s wisdom teachings to daily life.

Although the class topics generally follow a series format, each is self-contained and you can benefit from attending any class. Feel free to drop into any class that fits your schedule. While meditation is something we can do on our own, it is wonderful to receive teachings and guidance from a supportive community!

Transcending the Ordinary

Teachings from the Six Perfections

From giving comes wealth, from discipline comes happiness,
from patience come attractive forms, from effort comes the fulfilment of wishes,
from concentration comes peace, and from wisdom comes liberation.
                                                                                                               – Nagarjuna

Buddha taught six important mental states that when developed and practiced, lead us into living an inspiring, loving and meaningful life.  These beautiful, powerful states of mind are called, The Six Perfections. These practices are a special method that help us solve problems, pacify disturbing emotions and ultimately, empowers us to help and benefit others.
