Public Talk "A Buddhist Approach to Working with the Emotions"  
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

6:30 pm

Our emotions bring tone and color to our experiences, and predispose us to dealing with challenges and problem situations in specific ways. When the emotional body is strong and healthy, we are predisposed to meet life most effectively and creatively.

Public Talk "Beyond Ego: The Great Void and the Gateway to Freedom"
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

6:30 pm

Harmonizing one’s understanding of the ultimate reality of emptiness and the conventional reality of illusory appearances, as well as the place where these two dimensions of being meet, is a major theme in Buddhist philosophical and meditative training. Holding the two in balance is known as “the middle view”.

Public Talk "From Confusion to Enlightenment: Steps in Inner Evolution"  
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

6:30 pm

The seed of enlightenment lies dormant within all living beings, and is present even in the most confused states of mind. Like a lotus grows in mud and becomes a fully blossomed flower, the mind of confusion can grow into the beauty of fully mature presence.
