To say that we had fun today would be an understatement! 😄😄😄

The KMC Texas crew is the best!

Cleaning the temple is such joyful work and there’s nothing quite like the feeling of a clean environment. 😁😁😁🙌🙌🙌

Isn’t this beautiful?

Buddha Maitreya is the embodiment of the loving kindness of all Buddhas. Maitreya means loving kindness. The world could use a little more loving kindness these days.

If you would like to learn more about Buddha Maitreya and draw close to him, our Heart Jewel Practice is especially suited for this.

The Heart Jewel meditation and Sadhana is performed weekdays at 5 or 6pm at the Dallas temple. See the calendar and drop in by. It is always free and no appointment is necessary. 💛

“The mantra we recite in this sadhana is OM MANI PÄME HUM. Externally, it is a collection of six syllables, but internally it is the omniscient wisdom of Avalokiteshvara which protects living beings from ordinary appearance and conception, the root of all suffering. The six syllables of this mantra indicate that if we continually recite this mantra with strong faith throughout our life we will be able to purify and transform the six classes of living beings, including ourself. Understanding this, we should enjoy reciting this mantra.”

Excerpt from the Mirror of Dharma with Additions

Happy Buddha’s Return From Heaven Day! 🙏🏼

September 22 is Buddha’s Return from Heaven Day, one of the special holy days on the Kadampa calendar in which all of our virtuous actions are multiplied by ten million. After Buddha Shakyamuni attained enlightenment, he went to the Land of 33 Heavens where his mother had taken rebirth, gave teachings to the beings of that realm, and then returned to this world to turn the wheel of Dharma here. On this day, we can generate compassion for beings in the upper realms and generate the wish to return to this world as Buddha did so that the Dharma may flourish forevermore.

WHAT DO WE CELEBRATE ON SEPTEMBER 22?

BUDDHA HAS GREAT COMPASSION FOR ALL LIVING BEINGS, EVEN THE TINIEST INSECTS

Every year, during the summer months when insects and other tiny animals are abundant, Buddha encouraged his disciples to avoid harming them by not moving around any more than necessary. For this purpose he held a three-month 'rainy season retreat' with his disciples.

BUDDHA HAD DEEP CONCERN FOR THE WELFARE OF HIS MOTHER WHO HAD GIVEN HIM LIFE, AND NEVER NEGLECTED HER EVEN AFTER SHE DIED

After she died, his mother took rebirth in a heavenly realm, called Land of the Thirty-three Heavens because it has thirty-three different types of god. One year, during the annual summer retreat Buddha visited his mother there to give teachings to her and the other gods.

BUDDHA RETURNED FROM THAT REALM TO THE HUMAN WORLD TO CONTINUE HELPING THE BEINGS LIVING HERE

Buddha remained in that heavenly realm for three months, leading his mother and the other gods on the path to enlightenment. Then, as the summer retreat came to an end in the human realm, he returned to our world to continue helping all the beings reborn here. Every year we celebrate this auspicious day on September 22.

SPECIAL DAY
In the Buddhist calendar, this is a special day on which the power of our karma is greatly increased. Many Kadampa centers arrange special pujas and other activities on this day.

👉Do you feel like sometimes you are just going through the motions?

👉Do you feel like with all that has happened this past 2 years that you feel a little emotionally drained?

👉Do you feel like this whole life thing was supposed be offering a little more than it has?

🙌Then this meditation class is for you! Saturday Oct 2 engage in a mini meditation retreat that is simple, easy, and uplifting. This meditation was taught specifically by Buddha to put that pep in our step and leave us feeling uplifted, joyous, and energized!

With Kadampa Teacher Josh Hauberg. Josh has been on the teacher training program for many years and his joyful and light hearted nature is perfectly suited for beginner meditators!

🙌 For the next three months something very special is happening at Kadampa Meditation Center Texas!

👍 For three months on Sundays we will be exploring in depth, the meditations on Lamrim as presented in the extremely precious text “How to Understand the Mind” by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

🤲 These teachings are invaluable and everyone regardless of your particular faith, secular, or otherwise, can engage in these meditations.

😎 They used to be reserved only for Buddhist Monks and now these teachings are available to everyone, of every gender, every faith, every practice, every background, everyone, everywhere!

🤌 With everything in the world telling us that our happiness is out there, in this or in that, we realize that everything we need already exists within. We hope you’ll join us in this journey of transformation and learn how incredible your own mind is and what it is truly capable of! Where else in the world can you really do that?

Reading a Dharma book can be life changing. Hearing an actual teaching on what you’ve read can take your Dharma practice to a whole new level. Then, having a teacher walk you through step-by-step of how to actually practice in daily life is like the icing on the cake!

When’s the last time you’ve enjoyed hearing a teaching on a book you’ve read?

What and where is 'yourself'?
What do you look like without your body?
Do you have a personality without your mind?
'Self' is only a mere name upon a valid basis of imputation,
Unfindable by wisdom.

Come join us in the puja Offering to the Spiritual Guide tomorrow evening! Friday September 10th from 7pm to 9pm. 🙏🏼

The practice of relying upon a Spiritual Guide, or ‘Guru Yoga’, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments.

In Kadampa Buddhism, Guru Yoga is practiced in association with Je Tsongkhapa, an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

The principal Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa is Offering to the Spiritual Guide, which is an extensive practice that is usually performed twice a month, on the 10th and 25th days, at Kadampa Buddhist centers.

When we have a strong loving mind, our whole experience of the world changes. In addition, others feel this change and respond to it. In this very real sense, love has the power to transform our world.

Enjoy some pics of love transforming the world ❤️

“I initially signed up for Foundation Program thinking I was simply embarking upon a dharma book study program that would help lay some foundational aspects in my practice, but I was gifted so much more!! Indeed I received a substantial understanding of dharma, but also teachings and insight that opened my heart and deepened my connection with my spiritual guide. I became part of a phenomenal sangha that not only encourages me to keep forging ahead, but who I now lovingly call friends. I am grateful for FP starting up once again tonight and I am looking forward to growing alongside everyone as we all continue on the path of this beautiful practice” 🙏🏼 ~ Jennifer

Foundation Program is on Tuesday nights and Sunday afternoons.
