Buddha taught that happiness comes from inner peace, yet a peaceful mind does not come naturally–it takes practice, both in meditation and in our daily activities. The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, or Lamrim in Tibetan, is a series of 21 practical and powerful meditations that are the essence of all Buddha's teachings. Following these special instructions, we can overcome our burden of negativity and cultivate beneficial, positive states of mind. In this way we can our enjoy our life and make it truly meaningful each day. Join us for an introduction to the very heart of Kadampa Buddism, and learn how the practice of Lamrim is a step-by-step guide to developing an unshakeable experience of happiness and wisdom within our heart.
