About the Meditation Course
What prevents us from really connecting with and loving others? What is the root cause of feeling isolated, lonely or afraid? Buddha taught that the root cause is a particular type of ignorance called self-grasping.
We hallucinate and grasp at a self that is completely independent of others and the world around us. In truth such a self doesn’t exist at all. When we develop the wisdom that deeply understands this, we open the door to realizing the interdependence between ourself and others and can develop profound love, compassion and peace. In this special day course, Gen Thekchen will explain how Buddha’s teachings on ultimate truth, emptiness helps us to connect with all living beings in a way we never thought possible.
Everyone is welcome to attend this very special course.
