A thousand pounds can't make us happy

MODERN KADAMPA BUDDHISM MASTER CLASS

This weekend Gen-la Dekyong, the Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, gave a master class in teaching modern Kadampa Buddhism.

The occasion was a public talk in the World Peace Temple to which the people of the local area were invited.

At the beginning, Gen-la guided a simple meditation that anyone could take home and do.

She then gave a powerful explanation of what meditation is and the many benefits of finding ten to fifteen minutes a day to do some - and especially what a great kindness it is to others for us to practice meditation.

It was a powerful and inspiring morning in the Temple, and afterwards people were able to relax in Manjushri’s grounds and cafe, or on the beach - and some even managed to take in a guided tour of the Kadampa Art Studio.

We look forward to many more such days.

Please enjoy the video and photos.
