The Buddhist Way of Lovingkindness: The Magical Practice of Taking and Giving

When we purify our mind through the practices of taking and giving, every spiritual realization will grow easily in our mind.

– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

September 6 The Practice of Love
September 13 Compassion and Imagination
September 20 NO CLASS – Facility closed for renovation

Discover the powerful meditations on taking and giving through which we can heal our mind and powerfully enhance our love, compassion and wisdom.

“Taking” is a powerful meditation that uses the power of imagination and concentration to help others and to solve our own inner problems. “Giving” is a special training in love through which we bring our future ability to give happiness to others into our present spiritual practice.
