In this talk, Glen Svensson will be discussing how to cultivate mental balance and well-being through cultivating the four types of mental balance: motivational, attentional, cognitive and emotional.
Geshe Namdak will be leading an online summer Lam Rim Retreat, giving students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the stages of the Path to Enlightenment.
Mind training techniques help us to transform mundane experiences into a path of limitless compassion, and allow us to use our challenges and struggles as the food that nourishes our hope, courage and joy.
In Exploring the Path, students will navigate the graduated stages of development that lead the Buddhist practitioner towards full enlightenment.
Each of the twelve classes addresses one lamrim topic from a secular perspective. The class is divided into a lecture, guided meditation, and group discussion.
Geshe Namdak has kindly agreed to explain the prayers and commentaries on the pure lands composed by Lama Tsong Khapa and Panchen Lama Losang Chokyi Gyaltsen which he also translated on the advice of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
Over the course of ten weekends between October 2022 and November 2023, Geshe Namdak will teach on the Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra, which is considered one of the most essential treatises in understanding the Mahayana Path, characterised by cultivating infinite compassion for all beings.
