with Gen Kelsang Wangmo

IN-PERSON & LIVE-STREAMED (live streamed only. Sessions are only available at the scheduled time and will not be available afterwards)

We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence and yet we rarely consider it. In this course, Gen Wangmo will take us on a more in-depth journey into Buddhism, exploring the meaning of our death, our rebirth and how our reality is shaped by our actions, or karma. Discover Buddha’s simple and profound answers to life’s deepest questions.

Learn how we can use this knowledge to solve our human problems and find a peaceful, happy and meaningful life. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on life and death that cuts through our distractions, our stress and daily worries, and gets us on the path to genuine happiness. Everyone is welcome!


1st Session: 2-3.15pm

2nd session: 3.45-4.45pm

Death, Rebirth and Karma

All our classes include two guided mediations and a talk on how to incorporate meditation and Buddhist principles into daily life.

I feel very fortunate to have discovered the Edinburgh Kadampa Meditation Centre. With the help of the loving kindness and warm welcome of the teachers and staff there I have been introduced to teachings on Buddha Dharma which I know will provide me with a path to happiness I could not have found anywhere else. I am at the beginning of a learning process. I look forward to building on that and wish to express a deep gratitude to everyone at The Kadampa Centre who contribute towards that lovely experience. I will be forever grateful.
A heart felt thank you for both of these sessions and teachings today. I found the 2nd session very powerful and the teachings today have really given me things to think about which I’m excited to reflect on. I’m so grateful to be a part of this and thank you for your calm and considered wisdom and guidance.
