Eight Steps to Happiness
The Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness with Birgit Saunders

“What would the world be like if everybody had the opportunity to practise the Buddhist Way of Loving Kindness? ”, Gen la Dekyong asked at the beginning of the teachings on the Eight Steps to Happiness during the International Summer Festival.

“What would happen to our world? Every person needs these instructions, everyone needs these scientific methods that fulfil our deepest wishes for freedom from pain and problems and to experience pure and everlasting happiness.”

“What the world really needs is examples. How wonderful if we could be that example. Modern people believe what they see; if we could be truly kind, truly humble, if our every thought was for others, we could be that example for others.”

This eight week course is based on Geshe la’s book the new Eight Steps to Happiness, a commentary to Eight Verses of Training the mind by Bodhisattva Langri Tangpa.
We will train our mind in eight steps through contemplating, meditating on and practising Langri Tangpa’s methods to become more loving, kinder, with more understanding for others and to transform adversity into fuel for our spiritual path.

This course is also taught in Whanganui, Levin and Feilding, see website for more details.

Classes are also available on line, live on Wednesdays and the available till the next class the following week:
