Spiritual Activism: Transforming the Mind to Transform the World

Thursday, July 27th

07:00pm

Sixth Street Community Center (638 East 6th Street, New York)

If you want to change the world, start with the part that’s closest to you: your own mind. Purifying the mind of harmful tendencies, cultivating compassion, and developing wisdom not only transforms our personal world, it directly affects everyone around us: gradually making the world a better place. On this occasion Tibetan nun Ven. Robina Courtin will highlight how the Buddhist path can turn into Spiritual Activism.

All levels of practitioners are welcome.

7pm: Meditation
7.30pm: Dhamma Talk & Discussion
