The Liberating Path
Fifteen Meditations to Change Your Life
Tuesday Evening Teaching and Meditation
Kadam Lamrim is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings of the path to enlightenment. The Lamrim takes us step-by-step through carefully crafted meditations so we can purposefully nourish the qualities in our mind that lead to our happiness and reduce our painful thoughts and feelings.
In this class, we will go one-by-one through 15 Lamrim meditations, drawing out how we can personally use these meditations and create our own meditation practice. There will be a special emphasis on the art of meditation and how to really make our meditations effective. These teachings and meditations are suitable for beginners and seasoned practitioners.
“By joyfully and patiently doing the meditations we shall gradually experience the fruits of Lamrim practice. Eventually we shall attain freedom from all suffering and the unchanging peace and happiness of enlightenment.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
The module will cover the sixteen meditations outlined below. Those attending can come to all or any of the classes in this series.
