Gen Chogden opening door AnnapolisTuesdays are a very special day at KMC Maryland’s Annapolis branch class in West Annapolis. There’s a morning and an evening class that include both meditation and teachings on how to develop and maintain happiness and peace of mind.

Lunchtime Meditation is a half an hour guided meditation class that is suitable for anyone. It’s the perfect way to let the stress and pressure of your day melt away so you can return from your lunch hour feeling refreshed and nourished. The teacher will briefly instruct on the steps of meditation and then introduce a meditation topic; you then have plenty of quiet time to practice the process of meditation and improve your ability to stay focused on your meditation object.

The morning and afternoon classes are taught by KMC Maryland’s resident teacher, Gen Kelsang Chogden, a Western Buddhist nun who has been practicing meditation for over 20 years.

The environment is peaceful, warm and friendly and everyone is welcome! There’s plenty of parking in a large parking lot. And inside there’s a bookstore, a lovely Buddha statue, and always tea or other refreshments.

No pre-registration required. Just drop in!

 

10:30am & 7pm CLASS TOPICS: 

Making Our Life Meaningful

With our human life we can attain both temporary protection and eventually permanent protection from suffering by sincerely putting Buddha’s teachings into practice in our daily life. Because these attainments are non-deceptive and ultimate states of happiness they are the real meaning of human life.

Mental Strength = Peaceful Life
Being patient means to welcome wholeheartedly whatever arises, having given up the idea that things should be other than what they are. It is always possible to be patient; there is no situation so bad that it cannot be accepted patiently, with an open, accommodating and peaceful heart. When patience is present in our mind it is impossible for unhappy thoughts to gain a foothold and it is the basis for love and compassion.
