When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality, whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive and peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development.

Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and to be free from problems, we must maintain and develop a peaceful mind

On Thursday February 2nd 2023, renowned Buddhist Teacher Gen Kelsang Rigpa, will be coming to Vancouver for a special 90 minute talk. During the talk he will share how to follow the methods to solve our own and others’ problems and fill our lives with meaning and purpose.

Join us for this special opportunity.

No previous experience of meditation or Buddhism is necessary to attend this talk. This talk is open to everyone, Buddhists and non-Buddhists. Everyone is welcome!
