Stages of the Path Meditation Retreat

Sat Jan 5 - Mon Jan 7
Sat Jan 12 - Mon Jan 14

Discover the beauty of meditation! The Stages of the Path (Lamrim in Tibetan) is a beautiful sequence of meditations which dovetail with each other perfectly, presenting a practical and inspiring guide to contemplation and meditation. Geared toward application in daily life, Lamrim skillfully presents a cycle of various subjects which altogether encapsulate the essence of Buddhism. The teachings and meditations are clearly explained and are therefore easy to understand and practice, enabling us to bring greater depth to our spiritual journey and bring practical benefit to our daily life.

This retreat will be based on the book How to Understand the Mind, that presents the Lamrim in 14 meditations. Gen Menla will guide this retreat in an accessible and practical manner showing how Kadampa Buddhism is perfectly suited to modern day life.

Join us to learn about your potential for lasting peace and happiness and how to go about achieving that for yourself and those around you!

Note: Everyone is welcome to attend some or all of the retreat. Feel free to drop-in to any session.



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.
