"Meditation is the central pillar of Buddha's teachings. It takes what is learned and understood intellectually in one's head and moves it to the heart, making it a part of one's life."
This lecture is free and starts at 7:30 pm in Memorial Union at the UW campus. The Today in the Union screens ("DWB Meditation" listing) will tell you the specific room location.
All of our lectures include an introduction into Buddhism and the Diamond Way approach (also known as Vajrayana or Tibetan Buddhism). Campus lectures last about an hour and are followed by a short, guided experience of our meditation practice.
This lecture will be given by Jeremiah Hendren, a Diamond Way Buddhist and traveling teacher.
