International Teacher Visiting Tucson for Talk on Confidence

Gen-la Kelsang Jampa

Kadampa Meditation Center Arizona will host international teacher Gen-la Kelsang Jampa for two teachings designed to help overcome our self-doubt, increase our spiritual confidence and move us along the spiritual path, August 23 and 24. Gen-la Jampa is an American Buddhist monk dedicated to helping people solve their daily problems by developing the capacity of their mind through the practice of meditation and modern Buddhism. 

Suffering from a lack of self-confidence can adversely affect our daily life, relationships and spiritual development. Through learning to identify with our pure potential instead of our limitations, we can easily accomplish our meaningful goals. On August 23, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Jampa will host a public talk titled “Pure Confidence”. Attendees will discover how Buddhist wisdom offers an extraordinary way of viewing themselves and learn how to relate to the boundless potential they have, rather than their limitations. The talk is $20 if registered by August 16, or $25 at the door.

In addition, on August 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Jampa will give a course on The Preciousness of Tantra, the rarest and most precious of Buddha’s teachings. Practicing Tantra purely is the quick method to complete our training in compassion and wisdom and accomplish the ultimate goal of human life, the supreme inner peace of enlightenment.

Gen-la Jampa is the Deputy Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition, and the Resident Teacher at the International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon. He is well loved for his clear and inspiring teachings, and for his ability to touch people’s hearts through his sincerity and loving-kindness.
