In Sanskrit, the word Prajna refers to wisdom. Wisdom is different from knowledge. Knowledge is an accumulation of historical and experimental facts, which is mainly obtained through studying.  Wisdom is somewhat intrinsic which is mainly obtained through cultivation and mental development/meditation.  If your mind is pure and calm, your wisdom will emerge. Conversely, if your mind is full of defilements and annoyance, you will be ignorant with illusions.

Meditation is the actual method of transforming the mind. When, through meditation, the mind is transformed, what dawns is wisdom, or prajna.  With wisdom, you can simplify your life even more, so bringing more discipline, because you have the clarity and discernment to see what you should pursue or abandon. Then, even though you may be living in a complex world, you will possess an inner simplicity.

Thank you.

A Message from Geshe Jampa

Tashi Delek Dear Dharma friends, Since the beginning of 2014, with the sincere motivation to help others to achieve happiness, peace and prosperity in their lives, we have worked tirelessly on paper work  for many months to become registered as a non-profit corporation with the Arizona Corporation Commission, and filing our 501(c)(3) application with the IRS. We would like to share the good news that our center - Phende Shedrub Ling Buddhist Center received an approved letter of non-profit corporation from ACC in May and received a determination letter from the IRS office granting a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status just recently, in Nov 2014. We are planning to begin immediately with Dharma teachings and group meditation, and hoping to begin very soon the other events and projects mentioned  in the our program category on website. We will email you with information and locations for upcoming events. Please feel free to share this information with others who are interested or subscribe them to our email list. As we are a new non-profit organization, there are many things we need such as sound system, cushions etc..   Therefore, we humbly request you to kindly make a donation to help us grow. There is a PayPal donation button in our website. In the future, in order to best serve people we'd like to have a more stable location place and eventually we would like to lease or purchase a house for our center. Your donation toward this goal is greatly appreciated.  Please visit our “in progress” center's website. We will update soon. The center website: Wish you a very happy holidays and prosperous New Year.

Thank You!

With Metta Geshe Jampa Khechok
Spiritual Director Phende Shedrub Ling Buddhist Center
