Wisdom Meditation with Geshe Jampa Lama
Tuesday September 17, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
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.
Geshe-la will lead the meditation.
All are welcome.
The meditations will take place on Tuesdays from 7pm-8:00 pm. They will be held at Hidden Village 1901 E Osborn Rd Apt #113 Phoenix, AZ 85016. The apartment number is 113.
There are many covered parking spots outside of the complex to the left side of the main gate. Feel free to park in any of those spaces. As you approach the main gate, turn left and park in any of those spots. To get to Geshe's apartment from there, walk all the way to the end of the covered parking area and enter through the last pedestrian gate. Turn right and Geshe’s apt (# 113) is located on the ground floor of the first building.
There are also visitor spots within the complex. You may park in any space that doesn't have a number. The gate code is: #1212 or #1234. After entering the main gate, follow the road around to the pool. Follow the side walk to the right of the pool and continue until you reach a fork in the side walk. Take the left path and continue to the end of the building where you will find the apt # 113.
Because this is an apartment complex, please be sure to respect the neighbors and be quiet when coming and going.

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: www.phendeshedrubling.org Wish you a very happy holidays and prosperous New Year.
