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.

The Four Noble Truths
with Mari Evans, authorized Buddha Path dharma teacher
Sunday, November 12th
7-8:30 pm
The Yoga Center 

The Four Noble Truths of the Enlightened is the first teaching of Buddha Shakyamuni after attaining enlightenment, 2943 years ago. Simple and concise instructions for practicing the causes of happiness, they are the fundamental principles of Buddhism, contain the essence of all Buddha’s teachings, and are still relevant in our modern world.

“Why do I suffer? Where does my suffering come from? Who created my suffering? How do I reduce my suffering?”

“Why am I happy? Where does my happiness come from? Who created my happiness? How do I increase my happiness?”

The Four Noble Truths help us to look deeply at these questions and find for ourselves the answers that apply directly to our lives.

When I trust The Four Noble Truths,
I open the pure dharma eye of wisdom.
When I hold The Four Noble Truths,
I directly perceive the victorious Buddha Shakyamuni.

Buddhism is training in good thinking, which is contained in five types of intentions: renunciation, compassion, faith, love and wisdom. The methods in this class help to increase positive thinking, the cause of happiness and condition for others’ happiness, whether in sitting meditation or in everyday life.

Everyone is welcome. Suggested donation: $5-15 (for using the space; the remainder supports the activities of the Dzogchen Shri Singha Foundation)

Mari Evans (Pema Shiwa Tso) has been studying with Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche for 13 years, and has completed more than one year of retreat, immersed in study, contemplation and meditation in the Dzogchen Shri Singha lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
