Starting on March 21, 2012 a new class will be offered focusing on Shamata and Vipasana. This is a fundamental Buddhist meditation practice. The practice is coming from the Buddhist sutra “Do pedma karpo” or the “White Lotus Sutra”. This is a profound meditation teaching about how to deal with our negative emotions and how we can develop a mind with positive wisdom. The method I will be discussing in class is a general approach on how to manage ordinary obstacles of the mind like fear, anger, greed, and how to dissolve these obstacles. If you need more information about the class, please contact using contact information at the bottom of this page.

"Sharing the Merit, even if they give just one cent, people should have the motivation of putting a drop of water in the ocean. A drop of water on its own will easily evaporate, but in the ocean it will always remain." There are many ways you can contribute to WelcomingBuddhist for our future plans.

To not become happy because of praise, To not become unhappy because of blame, To support one's own good virtues, This is the character of the supreme being.
If the intention is good, the levels and paths are good. If the intention is bad, the levels and paths are bad, Since everything depends on intentions it is important that we make them positive.
Do not do anything harmful to one another, do only what is good. Discipline your own mind to subdue negative emotions.
Do no evil whatsoever, practice virtue perfectly, tame your mind completely. This is the teaching of the Buddhist doctrine.
