The art of patience
Public Talk with Meditation
Wednesday 23 October 2019, 19h30–21h00
Every day we encounter hundreds of situations we do not like, from stubbing our toe or having a disagreement with our partner. Our normal reaction to all of these occurrences is to become unhappy and angry. Since it is impossible to fulfil all our desires or to stop unwanted things happening to us, we need to find a different way of relating to frustrated desires and unwanted occurrences. Gen Devi will explain during this inspiring talk how to train our mind in patience, in order to be able to keep a cool and positive state of mind in every situation.
Gen Kelsang Devi is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Switzerland as well as Kailash International Retreat Center in Törbel (Valais) and a modern Buddhist nun. She is a senior teacher of the New Kadampa Tradition having studied and practiced Kadampa Buddhism for 20 years under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
During this time Gen Devi has engaged in extensive silent meditation retreat and has also taught and skilfully guided numerous group retreats around the world. Gen Devi’s experience makes her teachings and guidance in retreats very powerful, clear and practical. Her joyful warmth and humour make them accessible to everyone. She is an inspiring example of modern Buddhism in practice and is dedicated to helping everyone find peace in their minds through the experience of meditation and to use Buddha’s timeless teachings to discover real happiness in modern life.
The public talk and meditation takes place at Kadampa Meditation Center Switzerland in Zürich Altstetten.
