15th April – Cherishing Others

The first meditation is the principal meditation, and success in the other two depends upon gaining experience of this one first. In this meditation we will cultivate a good heart, wishing for others to be happy and free from suffering. This is true cherishing, and pure love.

22nd April – Taking Away Suffering

The second meditation is a practical meditation on compassion, which is a sincere wish to protect others from suffering. Using a special visualization, we increase the power of our good heart and develop the compassionate wish to take away others’ suffering.

29th April – Giving Happiness

The third meditation is a practical meditation on love, which is a sincere wish to give happiness to others.  We develop a strong wish for others to experience pure, lasting happiness and peace, and visualize ourself actually giving them this happiness. In this way, we deepen and strengthen our pure love.

Cost: £15 for series, free for members or £6 per individual class, free for members

The teacher of this course is Gen Kelsang Jigme. Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.
