Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Santa Monica

Buddhism's Seven Points of Mind Training have been the basis of a
transformative practice for close to a millennium. Many believe that
they cultivate the Buddha Nature inside each of us, reflecting on the
quest for peace, contentment and selflessness in a world filled with
turmoil and unrest.

For those who seek to learn about a
philosophy and practice aimed at spiritual renewal, Buddhist teacher
Shamar Rinpoche, author of "The Path to Awakening," will discuss Chekawa
Yeshe Dorje's important text on mind training at this Milken Institute
Forum. The insights contained in that text along with the meditation
Shamar Rinpoche teaches are considered means of deepening wisdom and
personal effectiveness. Among the questions the author may reflect on
are what is dharma, what is enlightenment and how do we incorporate
mindfulness into our everyday lives?
