Modern Buddhism Book Club

Modern Buddhism Book Club

In his book, Modern Buddhism, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, founder of the new Kadampa Tradition and spiritual guide of Vajrapani Kadampa Buddhist Centre, says: “In recent years, our knowledge of modern technology has increased considerably, and as a result we have witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in human happiness. There is no less suffering in the world today, and there are no fewer problems. Indeed, it might be said that there is now more problems and greater dangers than ever before.”

This drop-in class, led by Vajrapani Kadampa Buddhist Centre Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Mila, is like a book club whole sole purpose is to better understand minds of happiness! Each week, we examine portions of Modern Buddhism and discuss its applications and relevance in our busy, 21st century lives. Readings, gentle meditations and plenty of time for interactive discussion.
