Public Talk "Meditation on the Antidote to Attachment"
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

7:00 pm


When our minds come under the influence of attachment, we lose a great deal of freedom and no longer see things according to reality. Our minds become disturbed and we become like slaves to whatever we are attached to. This in turn, creates suffering for both ourselves and potentially, for those around us. In this class, we we examine the way to overcome attachment, by cultivating and meditating on its antidote..

Public Talk "Meditation on the Antidote to Aversion"
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

7:00 pm


Aversion is a mind that focuses upon an unattractive aspect of a feeling, person or object. When it arises in our minds, we immediately feel unhappy and disturbed. Moreover, this emotion leads to other harmful feelings, such as anger and hatred, as well as to negative actions such as harsh speech. Aversion is therefore a very destructive emotion. In this class, we will look at how to overcome this very harmful emotion by relying on antidotes.

Public Talk "Meditation on the Antidote to Jealousy"
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

7:00 pm


Jealousy is an emotion that causes us to regard the qualities and gains of another person as being intolerable. It arises out of excessive attachment to one's own gain and honor. It causes great mental disturbance and causes extreme negative feelings between individuals. In this class, Geshela will teach us how to deal with this afflictive mind.
