BUILDING BETTER RELATIONSHIPS
Thur: Feb 25, Mar 04, 11, 18 | 11am - 12.15pm
"If everyone were to practise cherishing others, many of the major problems of the world would be solved in a few years."
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche- How to Transform Your Life
To develop and enjoy good relationships in our life, we must learn acceptance and patience, and the difference between love and attachment. Pure love brings only good results and happiness, whereas attachment brings only problems.
In this series of classes, we will explore the difference between love and attachment and learn to engage in the profound Buddhist practices of loving-kindness. When our mind has the nature of love we naturally feel happy and peaceful. With such a state of mind, it is impossible to become disturbed or depressed or to develop anger or jealousy. In reality, pure love is a powerful force with which we can solve our daily problems, protect ourselves from suffering, and bring benefit to others.
