“How wonderful it would be if I and all living beings attained real happiness, the pure and everlasting happiness of enlightenment! May we attain this happiness. I myself will work for this aim.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Modern Buddhism
Everyone knows that love is the real source of happiness, but we need to understand that it isn’t just being loved, but also loving others that has the ability to make us happy. For our love to become stable under all circumstances requires training the mind.
These classes will teach us how to meditate on and practice a traditional Buddhist presentation on the three aspects of love. Building on this firm foundation, we will develop a fearless compassion for others, and the confidence and wisdom to know that enlightenment is possible.
