For those of us who love the old world Tibetan shops we are lucky to have locally, the Exhibition of the Buddha’s Ancient and Sacred Relics is sure to please. The Maitreya Loving Kindness Tour makes it possible for relics of the Buddha, as well as those of forty-four additional masters, to be on display at no cost to attendees.
Various relics being shown have been provided by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as well as some provided from Tibet and Burma. There will be a total of 3,000 relics to be seen, and as someone who has only recently visited a Buddhist Temple, I must encourage the public to visit and see for themselves these truly exquisite and breathtaking items.
Location: Boulder Shambhala Center, Boulder.
The multi-talented and gifted Meg Hutchinson will be leading Training the Mind and Changing the Brain: Methods of Transformation. Attendees will spend 90 minutes learning various meditations to calm and harness the mind in trying times. Anyone and everyone can benefit from a class meant to remedy the overworking and over-thinking we subject ourselves to every day.
Location: Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library, Broomfield.
