This weekend Nov 29 - Dec 1, there will be no classes or meditation practices.
Lama Zasep Rinpoche will offer teachings at GSL Monastery in early December. Below is a list of classes he will offer in Cincinnati. If you are interested in attending these classes, please be sure to add them to your calendar.
Dec. 5 (Thursday) 7 PM
Lo-jong (Buddhist teachings on mind training) Pronounced "low-jawng," this is a teaching offered to invoke inner reflection to deepen wisdom and compassion. This helps us to understand our mind and emotions to better deal with the challenges of everyday life with an awareness of the concerns and needs of others. As a result, the practice helps to develop a more peaceful, calm mind. All of this the foundation for our happiness
Dec. 6 (Friday) 7 PM
Dealing with Obstacles and A Lack of Motivation
We often struggle to maintain our motivation to practice the Dharma, especially when faced with obstacles. Lama Zasep Rinpoche will discuss
these issues and how our everyday life creates opportunities for developing both practice and motivation.
Gaden Samdrupling Buddhist Monastery, founded in 1999, is a community center for Buddhist study, practice, and culture. It is a tiny corner of Tibet transplanted to the West Side of Cincinnati. Historically, a Tibetan town monastery served as a hub of spiritual and communal activity. Community members drew religious and spiritual inspiration from the monastery and provided material support for the monks, who focused their efforts on helping all sentient beings.
GSL Monastery continues this tradition by offering classes, meditation practice and special events for those in the community who wish to learn about or study Tibetan Buddhism as a philosophy for life, a spiritual path or a religious practice. Our teachers offer instruction handed down from Shakyamuni Buddha (“The Buddha”) and passed from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage for over 2,500 years.
All are welcome. Our purpose is not to convert individuals to Buddhism. Rather, our intention in offering the teachings is to assist others in attaining happiness and peace.
Your generosity supports our monastery to continue to help many sentient beings and create a foundation of peace and happiness for generations to come.
