Join us as we discuss The Great Medicine That Conquers Clinging To The Notion Of Reality: Steps In Meditation On The Enlightened Mind, by Shechen Rabjam.



"In these inspiring teachings on how to open the heart, a contemporary Tibetan Buddhist master shows us how to change our self-centered attitude and develop concern for the well-being of others. He teaches that when we acknowledge our own wish for happiness, we realize that all beings wish for the same. With a broader perspective, we can develop the strength to extend gratitude and kindness first to those we love, and eventually to everyone. In his warm and informal style, Rabjam offers accessible Buddhist teachings that will appeal to anyone who would like to find more meaning in life. Based on classical Tibetan teachings, his commentary is fresh, humorous, and sharply insightful."

This book is available through Chapters, or by special order through your favourite independent book seller.


The format is a facilitated discussion where everyone can raise points coming from the week's chapters, and we reflect on them together. Reading commitment is short, less than an hour per meeting.

Open to all members of the Ottawa Shambhala Centre. This event takes place on zoom, every other Monday, from 7pm to 8pm, starting on May 8, 2023.
