Bad things can happen to good people, so the saying goes. So how do we make sense of things that seem to make no sense at all. From personal tragedies to global disasters, watching the nightly news we can begin to feel both overwhelmed and vulnerable. Frustrated and angry at the injustice and saddened by our inability to meaningfully address the issues. But what if there was a way to approach this suffering that allowed us to transform it into something powerful and positive for ourselves and others?
Indian master Shantideva's classic and revered text A guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life considers how we might be able to use suffering as part of our practice. He encourages us to see times of trouble as opportunities to use the deep feelings generated to create powerful and profound responses. This transformative approach encourages us not to turn away from problems but to stand in the eye of the storm with a calm and collected response. Join knowledgeable and engaging teacher Ven. Karston as he dives into the challenges of the modern world and takes a fearless look at the things that cause us suffering and what we can do about them.
Suitable for all students. Originally from Israel, Ven. Kartsön has worked closely with our Tibetan Teachers, studying and translating for ten years of our advanced study program, masters program, and is now tutoring this program. A knowledgeable teacher in his own right, he travels extensively teaching and translating for Lamas in India, Israel, Singapore, Taiwan and China.
