Losar Tashi Delek! The Tibetan New Year begins on February 5th, which presents an excellent opportunity for renewal and growth. The first fifteen days of the the first lunar month until the full moon on February 19 are considered to be highly auspicious. It is said that the effects of intentions and actions multiply millions-fold during this time, so it is very good to engage in virtuous activities such as meditation, recitation, helping others, practicing loving kindness and generosity, reconciling conflicts, letting go of guilt or resentments, overcoming addictions, and making virtuous aspirations. Please celebrate with us during this time!

Self-Healing and Transformation: a Buddhist Approach 

When challenges in life occur—difficulties, emotional wounds or traumas, they can sometimes seem impossible to overcome. But there is always hope; everyone and every situation has the capacity to change. Buddhist thought and practice offer solutions that heal and transform, inside and out. In this informal teaching, we will discuss the simple yet powerful practice known as ‘The Four Accumulations’—how to increase the qualities of confidence, discipline, glory and enlightenment.

This teaching will be available on Skype. Contact saltlakebuddhapath@gmail.com to join the call.
