Making Dharma Your Path

This spring, Lama Kathy will present a series of four teachings called “Making Dharma Your Path” based on the Four Dharmas of Gampopa. The teachings will be presented during the Dharma Talk period of our regular Sunday programming.
The dates and descriptions for these teachings are as follows:

Sunday April 2, 11:30am – 12:30pm

“May My Mind Follow the Dharma”
Modern life is full of distractions that make it difficult for us to see deeper meaning and possibilities in our minds and lives. The Buddha’s teachings describe the causes and solutions for suffering and show us how to make life meaningful.

Sunday April 16, 11:30am – 12:30pm
“May My Dharma Become a Path”
Once we’ve chosen to follow the teachings of the Buddha, we face the challenge of remembering the teachings in times of adversity. We struggle to establish a regular dharma practice, but if we can weather the struggle, we find that dharma becomes a true path for us.

Sunday May 21, 11:30am – 12:30pm
“May My Path Be Cleared of Confusion”
Even after we become comfortable with Buddhist study and practice, doubts about the path – and obstacles to deepening our practice – can arise. Bodhicitta can help us engage these obstacles and use them to clear our path of doubt and confusion.

Sunday May 27, 11:30am – 12:30pm
“May My Confusion Dawn as Wisdom”
It’s said that deep dharma practice makes our minds “supple” and flexible and able to practice no matter what is going on. But there’s more – we can learn how to transform our confusion with wisdom and see the blessing and truth in even the worst misfortune. Applying these teachings can make every moment of our life meaningful and a cause for awakening.

We hope you can join us for these wonderful teachings, which will also be available for download on our Cols KTC Web Store. While there is no charge for downloading the teachings, a donation would be appreciated!
