"No anger inside means no enemy inside." Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Time and time again we are overwhelmed by suffering but in the dense fog of our confusion, anger, and emotional afflictions, we can't see a solution or find our way out to happiness. We are living as though we are blind. How can we stop this continuous cycle of mental torment and turn things around? Is it really possible to warmly invite happiness into our lives?

Join us to investigate an ancient Buddhist technique to help still the internal storms that stop us from reaching our full potential for peace and happiness. The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation are short, confronting and profound; they deeply challenge our preconceptions of how happiness can be achieved in our lives. Inspiring, poetic and immensely powerful, the verses ask us to view the undesirable things in life through a radically new lens. By training our mind in this way, a state of peace becomes achievable. Undesired suffering turns into happiness and takes us further along the path to enlightenment.

The potency of this ancient thought training method can't be underestimated. Passed down through an unbroken Buddhist lineage, the text remains as relevant today as it was when first written in the eleventh century by Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa.

Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the dharma and inspires our community. He became a monk at Sera Je Monastery in India, where he was awarded with his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. He began teaching at Chenrezig Institute in 2014 after being chosen for our community by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. He teaches in Tibetan with the help of his professional translator, Ven. Kartsön.
