We will not be meeting this Thursday, but will resume July 11th at which time we’ll begin a series of sessions listening to, and discussing, a teaching given by Lama Norlha Rinpoche on Atisha’s The Seven Points of Mind Training as well as Jamgon Kongtrul’s commentary, The Great Path of Awakening. The Seven Points of Mind Training is a set of slogans that foster the development of bodhicitta – the desire to reach enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. It is a powerful tool that generations of Buddhist practitioners have used to integrate the Buddhist teachings of compassion and wisdom into their lives.
KCG is located just outside of Albany in the village of Voorheesville. Map and Directions available here.
Feel free to attend as much or as little of the program as desired. Meditation instruction is available for newcomers.

Without others, we would have no chance at all to develop beyond ego. So the idea here is to feel grateful that others are presenting us with tremendous obstacles -even threats and challenges. The point is to appreciate that. Without them, we could not follow the path at all.
– Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
