April 8, 2017 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm
Jampa Ling Kadampa Buddhist Centre

with Gen Kelsang Suma

We know from experience that the everyday things of this world – our jobs, relationships, possessions, status, and so forth – cannot supply us with real security or happiness. All of these things are fleeting. Finally, they vanish altogether. Establishing a refuge within our mind and heart is the foundation for experiencing freedom and joy, both here and now and far into the future.
In this course Gen Suma will explain the deeply enriching practice of going for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, which is known as “the gateway to Buddhism”. In addition, the day will include a Refuge Ceremony for those who actually wish to receive the special blessings of refuge and formally become Buddhists, as well as those who would like to renew their refuge vows.
