Join us for a special event in Balboa Park and be inspired by internationally renowned meditation teacher and Buddhist monk, Gen Kelsang Rigpa. Discover the joy and freedom of creating your own happiness. Gen Rigpa will share his wisdom with good humor as he guides us to experience the source of inner peace and happiness within our own hearts. The venue, The Museum of Photographic Arts, will open its galleries at 5:30pm so come early to explore the beautiful and intriguing exhibits. Everyone is welcome. Invite friends and family to enjoy an evening of insight, beauty, and positivity. Expect to leave with uplifted hearts.

This event is open to everyone, Buddhist or not, regardless of previous experience.

Imagine the freedom of being able to create your own happiness from within, without having to depend on things beyond your control. As long as our happiness is tied to external conditions, it will be unstable and elusive. We all have within us an inexhaustible source of peace and joy. Meditation is the actual method to tap into this inner potential and harness the power of your mind to create a happy, meaningful life.

Join us as we welcome our National Spiritual Director, Gen Kelsang Rigpa, for this special evening celebrating peace and positive energy. We will come together to receive his inspiration, encouragement and profound insights and leave with uplifted hearts.
