“All the happiness there is in this world arises from wishing others to be happy.” – Shantideva (AD 687-763), quoted in How to Transform Your Life, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Nobody wants to be a selfish person, and we all admire people who care more about others than themselves. However, it usually feels like putting ourselves first is the way to make ourselves happy.

These classes will focus on simple methods for making our love more pure and less self-centered. Recommended reading: How to Transform Your Life by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Free download here –
