The mirror of karma
Tuesdays | February 2 - 23 | 7 - 8:15pm
with Gen Kelsang Khedrub, resident teacher of KMC Boston
In Joyful Path of Good Fortune, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso writes: "Meditating on the law of karma is like looking into a mirror that shows us what to abandon and what to practise."
Everyone wants happiness, fulfillment, good health, and resources. Understanding karma empowers us to tap into our own internal strengths and resources to achieve our goals.
In times of such uncertainty, it seems that sometimes people wish they could read the future, just to be prepared, aware, reassured about their professional career, family life events, relationships.
Karma is giving us all the keys we need to understand why something happened to us, why we live where we live, why we experience certain situations repeatedly. With a better understanding of our current situation we can be at peace with ourselves.
In this series we will take a look at Buddha’s teachings on karma, and learn a special method through which we can free ourself from the negative karmic potentials that give rise to unhappiness.
