Advice For A Happy Life

About the Class

These classes are based on the famous Buddhist text Advice from Atisha’s Heart — which contains sublime, heartfelt advice to live by. Atisha’s advice is eternally relevant and packed with practical guidance that helps us transform our ordinary life into a joyful path to deep inner peace, for our own and others’ benefit.

At these classes, Gen Kelsang Shechog will explain how we can solve our daily problems and truly improve the quality and direction of our life by relying on the heartfelt advice from the much-loved Buddhist Master Venerable Atisha.

These classes are perfect for those who want to understand Buddha’s teachings in a bit more depth. The classes include two guided meditations and a teaching. Each class is self-contained so you can tune-in any week.

If you would like to buy a copy of Advice from Atisha’s Heart it can be purchased from Tharpa New Zealand. It is not necessary to have a copy of this text to attend the class.
