No Chocolate, No Problem: Being Content with Where You Are

7:00 pm Wednesday, June 19, 2019

The mind of attachment drives us to constantly seek happiness and contentment from external sources, through our jobs, money, approval from friends and family, the best house and car, and, of course, chocolate.

In this teaching, Venerable Robina will explore how to critically understand the delusion that expects happiness to come from outside, and how to develop and nurture the capacity for contentment from within.  

 

 

    Watch No Chocolate, No Problem

Come experience Venerable Robina's unique teaching style, which penetrates through the fog of confusion to the essence of the question at hand.

Supporting the teachings

Supporting the teachings is an incredibly powerful and important act -- it is a practice of the highest form of generosity – giving the means to enlightenment. Kadampa Center has for many years operated within the ideal of offering teachings without charging a fee, so that money is not an obstacle for anyone to hear the precious teachings and participate in the practices. We rely on the generous hearts of those who are moved to support the spiritual offerings and keep them open to everyone regardless of ability to pay. Supporting the teachings benefits not just the Center and those who attend, but it also greatly benefits the donor, because it creates the causes to meet the teachings again in future lives, and deepens the connection with the teacher.

Kadampa Center offers two ways to support the teachings: Sponsorships and Donations

Sponsorships begin at $108.

Sponsors receive:

 - The opportunity to attend a private tea with the teacher at the end of the visit. We must receive the sponsorship by two days before the teacher’s visit begins to assure your place at the tea.

 - The opportunity to write a personal dedication that we will post on the gompa door for all to share.  We must receive the sponsorship and dedication by Wednesday, June 19 to assure we have time to print and post your dedication.

There may be more than one sponsor for any event.

Donations are any amount from zero to $107.99.

Donors of $50 or more receive:

 - The opportunity to write a personal dedication that we will post on the gompa door for all to share. We must receive the donation and dedication by two days before the teacher’s visit begins to assure we have time to print and post your dedication.

 

Supporting the teachings is a two-step process

Step One  is dedicating your generosity (click here).

Step Two  is making the donation or sponsorship (use the buttons below on this page),

Dedications may be very simple - "For my mother, Rosemary" - or they might encompass more extensive spiritual wishes, such as "May these teachings be the cause to liberate all sentient beings," or wishes for the teacher's long life, to benefit a person who is ill - any heart-felt positive intention!  You also can dedicate for more than one intention.

Use our secure online community to donate by clicking your choice below.
