Chenrezig Institute is a teaching centre that offers a broad programme from secular mindfulness and ethics through beginner Buddhist topics to university-level Buddhist philosophy. Drop-in teachings and meditations are scheduled throughout the week and courses, workshops, and retreats on weekends.
When we study Buddhism, we are studying ourselves, the
nature of our own minds. Instead of focusing on some supreme being,
Buddhism emphasizes more practical matters such as how to lead our
lives, how to integrate our minds, and how to keep our everyday lives
peaceful and healthy. In other words, Buddhism always accentuates
experiential knowledge-wisdom rather than some dogmatic view.
–Lama Thubten Yeshe
It is great that even before we become enlightened or generate any lam-rim realizations we are able to offer incredible benefit to others. The person who does this is a very fortunate person and should rejoice very often.
-Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche
