assembly

These Festivals and Dharma Celebrations provide a precious opportunity to study and practice the special presentation of Modern Buddhism taught by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the Founder of NKT.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but whatever their duration they all offer a vacation with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter.

How to Understand the Mind

A new series based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s extraordinary book, How to Understand the Mind.  What is the mind? How does it work to cognize objects? Where do negative minds come from? How can we improve our concentration and other peaceful minds? What is an enlightened mind? We will answer these questions, and many more, all while learning to meditate in depth on the beautiful and blissful nature of our pure mind. Although taught as an ongoing series, each class will also function as a self-contained teaching and guided meditation. Feel free to come along to any class.
