On September 17 our most precious Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche showed the manner of passing peacefully into the clear light.

Venerable Geshe-la requested that for auspiciousness at this time all Kadampa centers around the world engage in a short retreat using his special prayer, Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche from his Faithful Disciples.

You who take on the great responsibility of caring in every way for the doctrine and migrators,
Giving to everyone equally, without discrimination, the precious opportunity to accomplish one’s own purpose and the purpose of others;

Learning from life ~ How to be happy, whatever happens!

Buddha taught that with wisdom, everything that arises in our life can teach us something beneficial and help us improve our mind and our good qualities. Through using our day to day difficulties as a special training, we can grow our inner strength, confidence and joy. Eventually we will have a healthy, flexible mind that is happy whatever happens!
Each week we will learn to transform these difficulties into benefit through wisdom and meditation.
