The Buddhist Way of Loving-Kindness @ Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Center
Apr 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Love is the supreme medicine. In Buddhism, love is a mind that wishes others to be happy, a mind that has immense good qualities, a mind that is perfected with practice both in and out of meditation. By relying on the instructions of the great Geshe Langri Tangpa, who explained how to easily train in loving-kindness, we will strive to improve our own experience of this supreme medicine.

Join us as we navigate the path that leads to personal and universal freedom and happiness. We will learn how to tap into our love, overcome obstacles to our love, and increase our capacity to love more deeply and broadly. We can all benefit from these teachings.

Everyone is welcome regardless of experience.
