Like a Cloudless Sky
with Ethel Rackin

Saturday, December 4
In-person | live-stream 
Time: 10 am – 1 pm


When we look at a cloudless sky, we do not prefer the east to the west. Buddha taught that inner peace and joy come from seeing others the same way: without preference or aversion. When we have a warm and friendly attitude toward everyone, most of our daily problems dissolve. Our mind becomes well-balanced, our time with friends and family becomes pleasant, and our friendships are long-lasting.

Everyone welcome.

Menlha Kadampa Buddhist Center

What is Kadampa Buddhism?

Modern Kadampa Buddhism is a special, systematic presentation of Buddha’s teachings particularly suited for contemporary society. This presentation preserves the meaning and intention of Buddha’s original teachings while making them clear and practical in a way that anyone can easily understand and put into practice.


"Everyone, both Buddhist and non-Buddhist, needs permanent liberation from suffering, and pure and everlasting happiness.”

– from the book Modern Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
