‘When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the sitution itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunites for growth and development.’ 

– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Take this oppotunity to learn from Buddha's teachings and transform difficulties into pleasant and benefical experiences. This class is perfect for beginners and those with more experience.
