How to Rely On a Spiritual Guide Part 1: Enjoying a Lifetime of Inspiration

Teachings & Meditations with Gen Kelsang Gomlam

Saturday, June 2 10:00 AM-2:45 PM

What is the real meaning of our life?  Without us relying upon a wise and experienced guide to take us through life’s problems we will never find our real purpose. How to find and rely sincerely upon a Spiritual Guide is a life-changing skill everybody needs.

During this course we will get answers to the following questions: Why does anyone need a Spiritual Guide? How to identify a qualified Spiritual Guide? How to go about choosing a Spiritual Guide? What is the correct relationship between a Spiritual Guide and a student, what are the boundaries, appropriate and inappropriate behavior? Gen Gomlam will teach based on Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s book Joyful Path of Good Fortune. To gain the most benefit, please feel free to attend Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of this series. Everyone welcome!
