The secret of Buddha’s smile
Do you find it difficult to resist patterns of negative thinking? Would you like to be happy whatever happens?
Buddha was always graceful and serene, no matter what situation he encountered. He taught many ways of transforming difficult situations into peaceful states of mind that enable us to remain happy. Therefore, the secret of his smile lies in the mastery of his own mind – through the practice of meditation.
How can we emulate Buddha’s beautiful example in our busy, modern world? In this workshop, we will find out exactly how.
Divided into two one-hour sessions, the workshop will be based on teachings from the renowned Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. It will be led by Matt Lucas, a native English-speaker and long-term resident of the Kansai region, who has been practising Buddhist meditation for over fifteen years.
Everyone is warmly welcomed, including non-native speakers and people of all spiritual inclinations, as well as those with no spiritual background and complete beginners.
The workshop will be held in a yoga studio near Umeda. Not only is the central location easily accessible, but it is also a perfect space conducive to meditation. Come and join us in this oasis of peace in the heart of the city!
