Description

In striving to accomplish our goals and to find real meaningful happiness, we often encounter many obstacles. No matter how much effort we put into it, often we still don’t manage to get what we want. Some attribute this to bad luck, but in reality it depends on whether we’ve created the right causes and conditions. We need to first create conducive conditions for success and this means creating the powerful positive karma or merit that is the main cause of all our happiness, success, and even “good luck”. Buddha taught many powerful methods to create this positive energy such as the practice of giving, rejoicing in others’ happiness, and mentally creating a pure world or “mandala” and offering it to all Enlightened beings.

On this day course, Gen Thekchen will explain proven methods to create the actual causes for both the temporary happiness of this life and the ultimate happiness of full enlightenment. It’s a course you don’t want to miss!

This course can be taken either as a day course on Saturday or as a weekend event with an introduction to karma Friday night and instructions on how to do mandala offerings Sunday morning.

An opportunity to engage in a week of retreat follows this course. Please see ‘Guru Yoga & Mandala Offering Retreat’ for more information.

The Teacher

Gen Thekchen is the Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva KMC. He is a Canadian Buddhist monk who has over 20 years of teaching experience. He presents Buddha’s teachings in a very practical, simple and often humorous way, making it easy to integrate them into our daily life.
