The heart of Buddha’s teachings is unconditional love and compassion. In this inspiring explanation of the popular Buddhist poem Training the Mind in Seven Points, the author of Universal Compassion; Geshe Kelsang Gyatso provides Practical instructions showing how to transform even the most difficult daily life experiences into opportunities for spiritual growth, through developing and enhancing minds of universal love and compassion.
In these weekly in-depth drop-in classes Buddhist Teacher, Mick Marcon will give commentary to, and guide the meditations contained within this profound book.
To have the opportunity to practise this precious and profound teaching is infinitely more meaningful than being given all the precious jewels in the world. If we understand how extremely worthwhile it is to read, listen to, study, contemplate, and engage in the practice of this very special Dharma, we will do so with great faith and a happy mind.
