FRESH MINDS: In Love with the World

Jun 04, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“With meditative awareness, we try to remove these filters and reduce the projections. We face inward and recognize awareness as a quality of mind itself. When we look at the mountain, there is less mental traffic between us and the mountain, fewer concepts and ideas.”

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, “In Love with the World: a Monk’s Journey through the Bardos of Living and Dying”

Meeting by Zoom for 9 Thursdays, April 9th – June 4th  

If you would like to join the discussion contact stephanie.basford@nalandawest.org

The Fresh Minds group will discuss topics related to Buddhism and it’s practical tools’ relationship to our everyday lives.

We will be reading and discussing Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche’s “In Love with the World: a Monk’s Journey through the Bardos of Living and Dying”

Mingyur Rinpoche tells his own spiritual journey and offers his doubts, indignities, suffering, and vulnerabilities with clarity and love to encourage and inspire us to travel our own spiritual journeys.

In this powerful and unusually candid account of the inner life of a Buddhist master, Rinpoche offers us the invaluable lessons he learned from his near-death experience. By sharing with readers the meditation practices that sustain him, he shows us how we can transform our fear of dying into joyful living.
