Public Talk: "Spros-pa" in Tibetan Buddhism
by Geshe Dadul Namgyal

6:30 pm

Now that we have already initiated discussion of, what I characterized as, pointed cases of Tibetan Buddhist homonyms that are weighty and momentous in nature, we cannot be done exploring it with just one example of “Rig-pa” that we discussed last month. In fact, I have decided to take up a series of them during my subsequent Tuesday night livestreaming sessions, hopefully with the audience’s approval. This month I invite you to look at the Tibetan word transliterated as “spros-pa” (pronounced trö-pa), typically translated as elaboration, fabrication, embellishment, etc. We will contemplate its meaning in several different contexts, wonder if at times it might even warrant a new slant to its translation, and dwell on its connection to our daily life and wellbeing.

Public Talk "Seeking a Meaningful Life Through the Eightfold Noble Path"  
by Geshe Ngawang Phende

6:30 pm

Eightfold Noble Path is an important practice in Buddhism that can help us have a meaningful life. Meaningful life in the Buddhist perspective does not equate to material gains. As a human being, we have human intelligence and many other conditions that animals don’t have which allow us to develop moral values, mindfulness, wisdom, and warm-heartedness. All of these values are taught in the Eightfold Noble Path. Through its understanding and application, we can achieve happiness and harmony at many levels, such as individually, within a family, and among society, which lead to a meaningful life.
