There are so many uncertainties in our daily life and we can often get caught up on what has happened or what could happen and become worried and unhappy. At this talk Gen Rigpa will give an insight into how modern Buddhism can help us to begin to recognize the underlying causes of our worry and show us methods to begin to let go and develop more beneficial attitudes.
Gen Kelsang Rigpa is an American Buddhist monk and close disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. He has received lineage blessings and oral transmissions directly from him. Gen Rigpa is the Western US National Spiritual Director for Kadampa Buddhism and the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood in California. Gen Rigpa’s heartfelt and practical teachings are presented with warmth and humor, making them accessible to everyone. He shows the joy of living a spiritual life and is an inspiring example of Buddhism in action.
