About this event

Reliance on the Spiritual Guide - day course

Saturday 18 December

10am - 4pm

Onsite only

with Resident Teacher Kelsang Kunden

The quickest way to make progress in anything in life is to rely upon the skillful guidance of a person who is already fully accomplished in what we are trying to achieve. For example, if we want to learn to play a musical instrument or to speak a new language we first find someone who is qualified to teach us. This is also true in our spiritual life – we need to rely upon an authentic and well-qualified Spiritual Guide to help us make swift progress in our spiritual training. All schools of Buddhism agree that the practice of relying upon a Spiritual Guide, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments.

On this course, we look at how to develop confidence and trust in a Spiritual Guide, why having a Teacher or Spiritual Guide is central to our spiritual progress, and how to deepen our experience of the precious practice of reliance on our Spiritual Guide. The course will consist of practical advice and guided meditation.

$45 full course. Free for members.

Avalokiteshvara Kadampa Buddhist Centre (AKBC) was established in 2009 to provide people in Guelph and Southwestern Ontario with the opportunity to develop happiness and inner peace through practising Buddha’s teachings.  AKBC is a peaceful oasis in the city where anyone can learn the right methods to experience lasting happiness and well-being. AKBC serves the Southwestern Ontario communities of Guelph, Kitchener, London, Stratford, Georgetown and nearby areas.

Kadampas are those who take Buddha’s teaching as personal advice and put it into practice.  This modern presentation from the Kadampa lineage is particularly suited to people of the modern world to help solve our modern-day problems such as stress, anxiety, anger, and ill-health. 

We are located in Guelph at 143 Wyndham St N, Suite 203, where we offer a wide variety of classes, courses, retreats and workshops and Buddhist prayers year round. We also offer drop in classes on meditation and modern Buddhism at various venues in the surrounding area.

Classes are run entirely by volunteers. AKBC is a Canadian registered charity (81467 9429 RR0001).

AKBC is also a member of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU), a non-profit organization with a global network of over 1,200 Centres and groups around the world.
