Public Talk "Excerpts from Tsongkhapa’s Poetic Text on Lojong"  
by Geshe Dadul Namgyal

“Good and bad karma are functions of intention; If the intention is good, the levels and paths are good; If the intention is bad, the levels and paths are bad; So everything depends on your intention.” Do these lines ring a bell? By the way, this particular stanza is widely popular in Tibetan community across schools and almost everyone knew them by heart from early on. Those are excerpts from a poetic work of Tsongkhapa on Lojong or mind-training instructions. This time will look closely at this Lojong text and reflect on some of the stanzas and lines in there.

Public Talk "Overcoming Stress and Anxiety in Professional Life – A Buddhist Approach"  by Geshe Ngawang Phende

6:30 pm

According to the Buddhist perspective, stress and anxiety are not only caused by external conditions but are mainly caused by one’s own negative emotion or mistaken mind.

A set of tools to achieve this transformation will be presented in this class through learning and understanding the Buddhist psychology and philosophy.
