The Gift of a Peaceful Heart


Mondays, 7 – 8:15pm at Mahakaruna KBC

Drop in classes with Kelsang Rak-ma.

Each class is self-contained.  You can join any time.

This is a season full of giving, both in terms of physical gifts and gifts of our time. (E.g. how many holiday parties ARE you expected to attend?) It’s a great opportunity to explore Buddha’s teachings on giving and discover how the practice goes far beyond the material world. We’ll investigate how Buddha describes the many branches of the practices of giving, which actually include: keeping, love, courage, and wisdom. We’ll also learn why Buddha said that we should approach the practices of giving with the same level of resolve that a business person uses in managing his or her affairs.


Along with our breathing meditations, this will help us to experience an inner reservoir of peace that can bolster us during the busy holiday season. This can be our best gift to our friends, family, and community!
