Public Talk "Three Pairs of Unions to strive for"  
by Geshe Dadul Namgyal

6:30 pm
LiveStream

The essence of a practical dharma habit boils down to building a healthy foundation of the three training of sila (“moral conduct”), samadhi (“meditation”), and prajna (“wisdom”), and the above lines from a famous spiritual song puts that into perspective and suggest ways to consolidate and distill the benefits to the here and now in one’s life. Geshe Dadul will walk us through that.

with Geshe Dadul Namgyal

Public Talk "The Patience of Accepting Suffering"
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

6:30 pm
LiveStream
Although we live in state of constant unsatisfactoriness and suffering, this suffering is not futile as it can be brought onto the path of inner development. If we do not learn how to do this, we may become discouraged by the difficulties of engaging in practice. In this talk, Geshe-la will look at why we need to develop the patience of accepting suffering and how to give rise to it.
