Heart of Wisdom
March 6 – April 24
In his wisdom teachings, Buddha explained the relationship between our mind and our world. When we study and meditate on these teachings we can overcome confusion, make practical changes in life and remove obstacles to realizing our full potential.
Meditation in Bellevue is taught by Gen Kelsang Khedrub, a Western Buddhist monk and the Resident Teacher of KMC WA.
Gen Khedrub has been studying and practicing Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s guidance for many years. His heartfelt teachings are presented with clarity and humor that make them accessible to everyone. Through his kindness, humility and deep understanding of Buddhist teachings, Gen Khedrub provides an inspiring example of a contemporary Buddhist practitioner that we can follow.
