"Overcoming Obstacles to Meditation: Tools for a More Successful Daily Practice."

 

The path of meditation can be a frustrating one. Between managing expectations and not knowing how to get started, to dealing with a mind that seems unwilling to be tamed, the struggles we face in ourpractice have been known in the Buddhist tradition for thousands of years, and their solutions have been sought and explained. In this evening talk Geshe Sherab will help us navigate the pitfalls of a meditation practice and give us sound strategies for making real progress toward achieving a calmer, more stable mind that has characterized by inner strength and resilience in the face of the challenges of daily life. This talk is open to and appropriate for all.

Like a string of precious gems, these guidelines are to be worn like a beautiful garland by all those who wish to journey the path of full awakening. These teachings will be full of practical advice that practitioners of all levels can begin using immediately to guide their own spiritual growth anddevelopment.Geshe Sherab was born in Manang/ Nepal in 1967 as the second of 5 sons.
