Weekly meditation classes taught in English

Modern Buddhism

– the path of wisdom and compassion

This course in practical meditation is based on the book “Modern Buddhism” by the renowned Buddhist scholar and meditation master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

Geshe Kelsang says: “The instructions given in this book are scientific methods for improving our human nature and qualities by developing the capacity of our mind.”

The methods Geshe Kelsang presents have been in use since ancient times. The experience of countless practitioners testifies to their effectiveness and they are as relevant to our modern world as they were when they were first taught by Buddha over 2500 years ago.

By practising these methods both in meditation and in your daily activities, you will increase the capacity of your mind to create happiness and avoid suffering.

As a direct result, you will gradually come to experience a deep sense of contentment and inner peace and freedom from problems, that will fundamentally transform your life.

This course requires no previous experience in meditation and is suitable for beginners and advanced meditators alike. You can sign up for the whole term (April – June) or for a month, or you can just pay week by week.

The e-book Modern Buddhism is available for free at Tharpa Publications.
