Meditations for World Peace


About this Class
In these uncertain times, there is nothing more meaningful than making prayers for world peace and for the safety and happiness of all living beings. These classes include a guided meditation, a short teaching and beautiful chanted prayers for world peace. The focus is on solutions to problems in daily life, authentic optimism and the development of altruistic love and compassion. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Our meditation classes teach simple, practical meditation techniques based on the teachings of Kadampa Buddhism. Their intent is to help people to gain a personal experience of inner peace, overcome their daily problems and find real happiness in their hearts.

Meditations for a meaningful life

The New Meditation Handbook is a practical guide to meditation that teaches us how to make ourself and others happy by developing inner peace, and in this way making our lives more meaningful. Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind. Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourself and others truly happy. Each week we will learn one of the twenty-one Buddhist meditation practices within the New Meditation Handbook.
