Love is the Answer

According to Buddha, love is a profoundly healing mind that we can grow within ourselves. The more we nurture our ability to love, the more we will experience its wonderful benefits, including a deepening sense of connection to everyone around us.

We develop real love on the basis of unchanging, universal truths, not momentary feelings. All living beings want to be happy, in that respect we are all equal. Everyone’s happiness and freedom is important. The more we open our hearts to all living beings the more balanced and stable we will feel and the happier and more loving we will become. 

For this special weekend, we welcome guest speaker Gen Kelsang Demo, the Midwestern US National Spiritual Director and the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center in Washington, DC. She has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for more than 25 years and has been teaching Kadampa Buddhism since 1998.

Gen Demo is deeply respected as a teacher and practitioner. She demonstrates a wealth of practical knowledge and provides clear and inspiring teachings for people of all levels of interest.

 “It is sometimes very difficult to distinguish between our love and our attachment for others, but when we are able to do so, we will see that it is invariably the attachment that is the cause of our suffering. Pure unconditional love never causes any pain or worry but only peace and joy.”
–Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
