The Essence of Kadampa Buddhism: Heart Jewel Practice Class

  • Kadampa Meditation Center Texas - Dallas 1875 Laws Street Dallas, TX, 75202 United States (map)

Kadampa Buddhism is a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings that makes the path to enlightenment accessible to people of the modern world and explains clearly how to transform our lives into the spiritual path.

As an extension of the Southwest Dharma celebration this special class will present some essential teachings on the practice Heart Jewel which is the daily meditation practice done by Kadampa Buddhists worldwide. Through this practice we can purify our mind of negativity, accumulate good fortune, and receive blessings of Buddha. We can also receive protection from Buddha which will help us strengthen our spiritual practice. In this way, we will naturally and easily gain realizations of the path to enlightenment and develop special wisdom.

This class will introduce the meditations contained within the practice and explain how to do them.



Gen Kelsang Menla has studied under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for over 20 years and was requested by him to become the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Texas in June 2017. Gen Menla was ordained as a Kadampa Buddhist monk in 2001 and has worked and taught within the New Kadampa Tradition for many years. He brings a warm heart and joyful attitude to sharing Buddha’s teachings and the practice of meditation.
