May I Become Just Like You

A Special Weekend Course with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong
Saturday 22 September – Sunday 23 September · 10am–5pm · $150
If we want to be truly happy we need to work with our mind, gradually transforming it into love, compassion, and wisdom. On this course, Gen-la Dekyong will give teachings on how we can use meditation and reliance to transform our mind into these powerful positive states. This course will include transmission and commentary to the ‘Request to the Lord of all Lineages’ prayer which we can use to help us develop these states of mind that bring us closer to the peace and happiness experienced by all the enlightened beings.
