with Ven. Tenzin Namjong
Tuesdays, 7:00pm – 8:30pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)
May 25 – June 29, 2021
(4 – 6 classes)
Examine what is "mind," its nature and function, and how it affects our experience of happiness and suffering. Come explore the differentiation between mind and brain, mind as the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. In addition, learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and create a positive and joyous mind.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Venerable Tenzin Namjong studied and trained in Zen and Theravada traditions before embracing the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, due mainly to the kindness of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
He holds a B.A. in Philosophy from Princeton University and has been part of the 19 year Geshe study program at Sera Je Monastery in South India since 2007.
Venerable Namjong is a registered teacher of the FPMT and he regularly teaches at FPMT centers in India.
