Sunday Mornings: Becoming a Friend of the World

In-person classes begin May 9! You must pre-register as an in-person attendee; limit is 12 in-person students.

With all the new appearances in our world and the unusual circumstances changing so many of the things we took for granted; now is the time to look more deeply into a way of being in the world that actually benefits everyone.

Buddha taught practical and rare guidelines for living a purposeful life in a busy and hectic world. By applying these powerful methods we can help our family, friends, and our world find real happiness and a better quality of life.

“It is said that there exists a magic crystal that has the power to purify any liquid into which it is placed. Those who cherish all living beings are like this crystal—by their very presence they remove negativity from the world and give back kindness.”
– Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
