Creating a Happy and Meaningful Life

Tuesdays, 7 - 8:30pm @ KMC SF

Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make a human life meaningful. (How to Transform Your Life)


August 15:  The True Meaning of Life

What do we wish for, strive for or day dream about? What will never deceive us? Come ponder the meaning of enlightenment for yourself and others.


August 22: Fulfilling our Potential

In Buddhist teachings we find the method to ripen our seed to become a fully enlightened being. We realize our real potential for lasting happiness and being of benefit in our world.


August 29: Love More, Live Better

To follow the path to lasting happiness, enlightenment, there's no need to change our external lifestyle. We do not need to abandon our family, friends or enjoyment, and retire to a mountain cave. All we need to do is learn to cherish others.
