Friday Night Lecture: Why Me? A Buddhist Perspective

We often find ourselves experiencing things we can’t explain. When faced with difficult situations and uncertainty; we can develop anxiety, fear, and frustration. Sometimes these situations repeat themselves, and despite this familiarity and repetition, we often feel we have no power to learn or grow from them.

Karma is the law of cause and effect. Buddha, through his teachings, illuminated this law and how it manifests in our daily life.  By understanding and applying Buddha’s teachings on karma and learning to identify the actual causes of our suffering, we can begin to control our daily experiences and start to create the future experiences we want. Join us for a fun evening!

This class is a perfect introduction to the Buddha’s teachings on cause and effect. Everyone welcome!
