Welcome to the Lama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Group Community

 Visit the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archives - photo by Merry ColonyLama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Group is an open-hearted community that empowers people to discover and develop their inherent potential for compassion, wisdom and inner peace. Here you can get in touch with what is happening in our community, meet friends, learn about Buddhist Philosophy, and most importantly discover methods that may help you to overcome suffering, develop compassion and gain insight. We are a collection of FPMT study groups in Central Ontario, meeting in Kitchener/Waterloo, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Toronto.

The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition ('FPMT') transmits the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through Tibetan Buddhist teachings, meditation, community service, retreat centers, and projects that support the Inspiration and Guide of the FPMT His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The FPMT is based on the Gelugpa tradition of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet as taught by our founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Our Special Guest will be Daniel Star whose talk is titled "What Lama Yeshe Taught Me"

"Lama Yeshe" and his primary student, Lama Zopa Rinpoche started teaching classes to Westerners at the newly acquired Kopan Monastery in 1971. By the 5th course in the Fall of 1973, there were 200 students learning the Lam Rim in a large tent near the top of the Kopan hill. Daniel Star was there, being introduced to Buddhism, and experiencing the clash of a western mind with eastern thought.

In these early days, access to the Lamas was easy and relaxed. Daniel had the opportunity to be with them in Nepal and North America. 

In this conversation, Daniel will describe his experiences, the challenges, the bliss, the humour, and how the teachings changed his life and how they were applied. The first part will be on “how he got here from there” followed by the main points of his Emotional Intelligence workshop on happiness."

We hope you are able to join us! A calendar of our events for 2015 will be available that will include meditation, Visiting Buddhist Teacher events, 16 Guidelines workshops, Buddhist programs, 5 Tibetan Yogas, Transformative Mindfulness Methods, a retreat and much more.

The genre of teachings known as the Stages of the Path (Tibetan: lam-rim) represents a synthesis of the entire path to enlightenment. Based on Atisha's Lamp of the Path to Enlightenment, they present the essence of all the Buddha's teachings in a clear and concise way, easy to understand and apply in meditation. His Holiness the Dalai Lama will continue a several year cycle of teaching this topic in India this December. (English resources: http://www.jangchuplamrim.org/jangchup-lamrim/text-translations/text-translations-english/) 

The idea of the group is to provide us all with a forum to discuss basic (or maybe not so basic) Buddhist teachings and explore how these apply to our own lives.

We use the FPMT Discovering Buddhism program to develop awareness of our own thoughts and feelings and reactions to people and daily events, as an experiential integration of Buddha's philosophy. We will focus on creating a safe and supportive environment where all of us can freely share our thoughts and discuss how Buddhist principles of mind training and the practice of compassion can assist us in daily life.
