Akanishta Sunday Meditation Class

Finding Focus and Meaning

Introduction to Buddhism

2,500 years after the passing of Buddha, his message continues to resonate. This compelling series of classes explains the essential principles of the Buddhist way of life and what it means to be a Buddhist. Meditation is explained clearly and simply as a tool for developing qualities such as inner peace, focus, love and patience.

These days, many people are discovering that Buddhism has answers to questions and solutions to problems that cannot be found anywhere else. It is hoped that this series of classes with Gen Kesang Öpel will help to deepen the understanding and appreciation of Kadampa Buddhism in this modern world, as a meaningful and practical approach to human life.
