Wisdom and Faith: Two Essentials for Navigating Difficult times to Our Advantage

Friday 22 January · 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
A Public Talk with Gen Kelsang Sanden

It is easy to see that our world is filled with problems and uncertainty. Right now, more than ever, we need wisdom and faith.  Wisdom helps us distinguish between what is beneficial and what is not. Faith is like pure eyes that can see a pure world – without which we can see no possibility of pure and holy objects.

In this special class, you will learn how wisdom can develop faith and how faith can help us develop wisdom. We need both to navigate our life in a way that will lead to happiness even in the best of times.

Join us for this special class with Gen Sanden as he presents some of Buddha’s most profound, inspiring and practical teachings and meditations. Everyone is welcome!
