What and where is 'yourself'?
What do you look like without your body?
Do you have a personality without your mind?
'Self' is only a mere name upon a valid basis of imputation,
Unfindable by wisdom.

Come join us in the puja Offering to the Spiritual Guide tomorrow evening! Friday September 10th from 7pm to 9pm. 🙏🏼

The practice of relying upon a Spiritual Guide, or ‘Guru Yoga’, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments.

In Kadampa Buddhism, Guru Yoga is practiced in association with Je Tsongkhapa, an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

The principal Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa is Offering to the Spiritual Guide, which is an extensive practice that is usually performed twice a month, on the 10th and 25th days, at Kadampa Buddhist centers.

When we have a strong loving mind, our whole experience of the world changes. In addition, others feel this change and respond to it. In this very real sense, love has the power to transform our world.

Enjoy some pics of love transforming the world ❤️

“I initially signed up for Foundation Program thinking I was simply embarking upon a dharma book study program that would help lay some foundational aspects in my practice, but I was gifted so much more!! Indeed I received a substantial understanding of dharma, but also teachings and insight that opened my heart and deepened my connection with my spiritual guide. I became part of a phenomenal sangha that not only encourages me to keep forging ahead, but who I now lovingly call friends. I am grateful for FP starting up once again tonight and I am looking forward to growing alongside everyone as we all continue on the path of this beautiful practice” 🙏🏼 ~ Jennifer

Foundation Program is on Tuesday nights and Sunday afternoons.

“Happiness and suffering are feelings- parts of our mind- and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we really want to be truly happy and free from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind” ~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Join Sunday or Tuesday FP and learn how to understand the mind! 💎

Did you know that the profits from our Festivals and Celebrations go directly to the International Temples Project? That means these events give immense meaning to those who attend through the special understandings that come from the teachings, blessings and time spent with Sangha friends. But these events also give immense meaning for the future, creating more and more places--either traditional temples or city centers--where the people of this world, including future generations, can begin to transform their lives and the world.

We had a lot of fun recording the Meditation for Beginners series with Earl Johnson. Earl is such a humble and peaceful man that you might overlook him at first glance. Yet, his unassuming nature is one of his strongest assets and when he speaks his words carry some series weight.

This was my second Summer Festival. I loved the companionship and camaraderie with fellow Kadampas during our watch party at KMC Texas and during the breaks between meditations, empowerments, and commentaries. The gompa was resplendent with beautiful offerings and images of Buddha Heruka Father and Mother and Vajrayogini with her khatanga. Of course, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa's beautiful teachings filled me with wonder and joy; Gen-la Keslang Khyenrab filled me with laughter and gentle understanding with his ever-humorous approach to Q/A; Kadam Bridgette Heyes' meditations were fantastic in getting us ready, and; Gen Kelsang Rabten's insights into The Yoga of Buddha Heruka reinvigorated and deepened my practice. Peace on earth is possible as illustrated by these teachings and practices. I wish for everyone to have this opportunity! ~ Earl 💎

In reality, the painful feelings that arise are not intolerable, they are only feelings, a few moments of bad weather in the mind, with no power to cause us any lasting harm. There is no need to take them so seriously. ~ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
