Life is But a Dream: An Introduction to Emptiness

Saturday, October 20 10:00 AM-2:45 PM

With Gen Kelsang Gomlam

Milarepa said:

“Last night’s dream is my Teacher. Is it the same for you?”

During this meditation day course, Gen Kelsang Gomlam will give a commentary to this beautiful and profound quote which reveals Buddha’s teachings on the true nature of reality, emptiness. Buddha described that our reality is not as solid and fixed as it appears. By recognizing the dream like nature of things, we can wake ourselves up to the potential for radical transformation to deeper happiness, freedom, and power to benefit others.

“There is no better method to experience peace of mind and happiness than to contemplate and meditate on emptiness…” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Modern Buddhism
