Drop-in Meditation Classes
In Person & Livestreamed Online
Wednesdays 7.30pm – 9pm
(available for 48 hours after on catch up)
Modern Buddhism is a special practical presentation of Buddha’s teaching that is perfectly suited to our modern world. Learn how to integrate this ancient wisdom into modern daily life with theses classes based on the book Modern Buddhism.
Each week Gen Paljin will teach a section of the book including meditations and advice on how practically to apply the teachings in daily life. Every class is a stand-alone teaching so you can join at any stage. The classes run for 1.5 hours and include teaching, meditation and preparatory prayers.
The Modern Buddhism classes are suitable for people who enjoy our one-hour drop-in classes and would like to know more about Buddhist teachings. They are also suitable for those who are considering (or studying already) on our more in-depth Foundation Study Programme as it will deepen understanding and experience of the entire spiritual path.
“Through reading and practising the instructions given in this book, people can solve their daily problems and maintain a happy mind all the time.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre and of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 22 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
