Buddhist solutions for our difficult times

Public Talk with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab

We can see for ourselves that despite all our efforts to solve our problems, there is no less suffering in the world today, and there are no fewer problems. In recent years our knowledge of modern technology has increased considerably, but there has not been a corresponding increase in happiness or decrease in suffering or problems. Buddha’s teachings clarify why this is so and show us why, if we seek real happiness and solutions to our own and others’ problems, we must improve the quality of our mind.

Buddhist teachings give us scientific methods to do exactly that.

On Thursday April 7, renowned Buddhist Teacher Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, will be coming to Vancouver for a special 90 minute talk.  During the talk he will share how to follow the methods to solve our own and others’ problems and fill our lives with meaning and purpose.

Join us for this special opportunity.  Limited in-person seats and live-streamed.


Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab is an internationally renowned teacher and English Buddhist monk who is greatly admired throughout the world for his powerful teachings, his wisdom, as well as his pure example of humility and loving-kindness.

He is the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) National Spiritual Director for Canada and the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Canada in Toronto.

A retired General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU), he has trained closely with Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for forty years and holds the lineages of his blessings in his heart. He is a very inspiring example of a pure practitioner of modern Kadampa Buddhism who relies sincerely upon his Spiritual Guide in all his actions.

He is well-known for his deep understanding of Buddha’s teachings and his ability to convey their profound meaning in a very clear and accessible way. We are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to receive teachings directly from him.
