Overcoming the Ego | Saturday 13 May, 10am-1pm | with Buddhist Monk Gen Kelsang Gomchen
“If your mind is released permanently from self-grasping, there is no doubt that you will be released permanently from suffering.”
~ Mahasiddha Saraha
Receive powerful teachings on how we can learn to recognize, reduce and eventually abandon the mind of ego-grasping that is the source of all of our daily problems.
Although the subject matter is quite deep, the emphasis of this morning course will be on how to practically apply Buddha’s teachings on overcoming self-grasping and self-cherishing to find peace in our daily life, to improve our relationships with others and eventually become a Hero or Heroine: someone who has become utterly victorious over their inner enemies of pride and self-concern.
The teachings will be based principally on the book, How to Transform Your Life, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, which presents a complete set of instructions on how to transcend our ordinary attitudes and develop a powerful mind with which we can bring immense benefit to others.
Everyone welcome. No previous experience necessary.
