A talk on happiness & meditation with Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche
May 6th: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
We can spend our entire lives searching for happiness externally, but true happiness can only be found within. If we simply remove the barriers between us and our true nature, our inner happiness comes out. When we know our minds are fundamentally comfortable, innately happy, then wherever we go, whatever we do, happiness is always with us.
This evening talk with Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche offers a rare opportunity to encounter Buddhist principles for working with our mind from a lineage holder of this tradition. Rinpoche will introduce us to methods for experiencing and expanding our natural state of happiness, and ways of applying these skills to every area of our lives.
Beginners welcome—no previous experience with meditation or Buddhist practice is necessary.
