    Uncover the Beauty of Inner Peace

    Weekend Retreat with Gen Kelsang Namdrol

    Gen Namdrol will lead us to uncover the beauty of our inner peace. In this way, we will make our new year deeply meaningful and special by bringing real happiness to ourselves and others.

    What is happiness?  We are all striving for it but do we really understand what it is?  Through contemplating and meditating on the wisdom of Buddha’s teachings we can begin to develop and maintain the true cause of happiness within our own mind, inner peace.  Only then will we have the confidence to begin to let go of our problems and unhappiness and instead we will discover a stable and lasting happiness that no changing external condition can destroy.

    “The real source of happiness is inner peace. If our mind is peaceful, we will be happy all the time, regardless of external conditions, but if it is disturbed or troubled in any way, we will never be happy, no matter how good our external conditions may be. External conditions can only make us happy if our mind is peaceful. We can understand this through our own experience.”
