Train Your Mind – for Inner Strength and Confidence

29 January @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

£10.00

Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre is the site of the first Modern Kadampa Buddhist Temple for World Peace, attracting tens of thousands of visitors annually. It is in this Temple that the Public Talk will be held. Gen-la Dekyong will explain how, through training our mind in meditation and special ways of thinking, we can experience greater inner strength and confidence. Inner strength and confidence are qualities that will be very helpful to us if we wish to enjoy a stable experience of inner peace and happiness in our life.

Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong is the General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition of Buddhism and Resident Teacher of Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre. Gen-la, as she is affectionately known, is greatly respected for the power and sincerity of her teachings and the warmth of her personality.

Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre and Temple for World Peace has a popular cafe and beautiful walks through ancient woods to Morecambe bay. The public talk will be held at 11.30am on Sunday the 29th of January and will last for an hour. A delicious vegetarian lunch will be available afterwards and the cafe and gift shop will be open until 5pm.

The Public Talk will be followed on by a new series of classes in the Temple in Ulverston with Gen-la Dekyong on Tuesday evenings – and also at weekly branch classes, Kendal and Barrow.
