Friday Night Lecture: Emptiness of All

June 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Buddha explained that self-grasping ignorance is the root of samsara, and that the only way to eradicate it is to realize emptiness. Emptiness is not easy to understand, but it is extremely important that we make the effort.

The extent to which we suffer is directly proportional to the intensity of our self-grasping. For example, when our self-grasping is very strong, we feel a sharp mental pain when others simply tease us in a friendly way; and when our self-grasping is weak we just laugh with them.

Once we completely destroy our self-grasping, all our problems will naturally disappear. Even temporarily, meditating on emptiness is very helpful for overcoming anxiety and worry.

Class includes 2 guided meditations. No pre-registration is required for this class.

Please arrive a few minutes early to register and settle before the class begins. Cost is $15 or Bring a friend for $20.
