What is our usual response to the problems and suffering we and those around us inevitably have to face? Discouragement, fear, grief, anger? When we find ourselves caught up in painful, overwhelming situations, is there anything we can do? The answer is yes!
In this public talk, internationally renowned meditation teacher and Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Rabten will explain the life-changing practice known as ‘transforming adverse conditions into the path’. Everyone needs this practice. Through this training, rather than feeling discouraged by problems and pain, we turn that negativity into a powerful force for empowering our mind. The result is instead of feeling stuck and helpless, we have the power to transform suffering into positive states of mind, such as love, compassion, and joy. This not only makes us emotionally strong, but also enables us to bring happiness to those around us.
Gen Kelsang Rabten is the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) National Spiritual Director for Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia, and has trained under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for over twenty-seven years. Gen Rabten exemplifies the essence of the modern Kadmapa's way of life, brings a warm heart and joyful attitude to sharing Buddha's teachings and the practice of meditation.
