Making Every Moment Count
Feb 4, 2017
Kadampa Meditation Center Maryland, World Peace Temple, 900 East Northern Parkway, Baltimore MD 21212
Despite the inevitability of our death, and the complete uncertainty of its time, few of us give it a moment’s thought until it is too late. In this retreat we can learn how coming to terms with our mortality enriches our life and enables us to meet our passing with dignity, confidence, and joy. We can be inspired to live a pure, liberating lifestyle in which every moment is meaningful.

Valentine’s Day Food for Thought
Feb 11, 2017
Kadampa Meditation Center Maryland, World Peace Temple 900 East Northern Parkway, Baltimore MD 21212
We all wish for good relationships in our lives, whether it is between parents and children, couples, or even friends. However, often we suffer from misunderstandings, unrealistic expectations and conflict – although we love each other, we are not always happy together. Through understanding the true nature of love we can improve the quality of our close relationships and learn how to truly enjoy each other’s company.
At this special Valentine’s party you can anonymously ask your questions about love and relationships and receive practical and qualified answers from the “Buddhist Love Panel”.
The evening will include social time to enjoy a gourmet 3-course homemade vegetarian dinner with dessert.
