Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully
In Person @ Burnley KBC & Livestream
Saturday 16 October, 10am – 1pm
(available for 48 hours after on catch up)
None of us can remain in this life forever and we all must eventually pass from this life. Take time to explore the ideas of death and rebirth and discover how understanding our own mortality can be a powerful motivator for creating meaningful change and inner transformation.
Preparing for death is one of the kindest and wisest things we can do for both ourself and others. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Death is one of the great mysteries of life. Few people understand what happens when we die, and how important it is for us to prepare for this inevitable event that we shall all experience. Buddha explains with great clarity what happens during the death process, and by understanding this, how we can use this knowledge to make our life truly meaningful.
Our half day meditation courses are an ideal way to learn more about meditation and inner peace. They are designed for those who are new to meditation but also for those who would like to improve and deepen their understanding.
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the course.
The cost is £15 (£5 for Monthly Members and free for FP members).
This morning course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin, the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre and of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 20 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
