In the text Modern Buddhism there is a description that explains why people follow Buddha. It says:

We need to practice Buddha’s teachings because there is no other real method to solve human problems. Buddha’s teachings are scientific methods to solve the problems of all living beings permanently. By putting his teachings into practice we shall be able to control our desire and because of this we shall be permanently free from all our suffering and problems. From this alone we can understand how precious and important his teachings, the Dharma, are for everyone. Because all our problems come from uncontrolled desire, and there is no method to control our desire other than Dharma, Buddha’s teachings, it is clear that only Dharma is the actual method to solve our daily problems.

Join us for a special day course and learn the basics of Buddhism and how Buddha’s teachings can help us to find protection from suffering. Gen Kelsang Wangpo, our Resident Teacher and an American Buddhist monk will give teachings from the text Modern Buddhism (available as a free e-book) to help everyone understand the importance of Buddha’s message with regards to our own happiness.

These teachings focus on the universal principles of happiness and well-being. Everyone is welcome regardless of their background.
