“Living in Buddha Standard Time: It's Not Time We Lack but Focus”
In our time-stressed era, who doesn't struggle with the increased speed of events and things to be done? Buddhist wisdom has a lot to say about how to deal with change and feelings of stress and overwhelm, time-famine and anxiety. The New Now just isn't what it used to be! We’ve all heard about the power of now, but many of us are not equipped to cut through habitual illusions and realize the magnitude of the present moment. With the sacred art and practice of presencing, we can learn to consciously and intentionally cultivate clarity and appreciate each moment of our life.Lama Surya Das, one of the nation’s foremost Buddhist meditation masters and spiritual leaders, invites you to directly experience the spacious dimension that he calls “Buddha Standard Time”. Translating Buddhist principles to their most practical form for today’s world, Surya Das shows you how to transform your relationship with time—paradoxically allowing you to become more effective, productive, and happy as you become less preoccupied with schedules and deadlines. We have all the time in the world; it's only focus and awareness that we lack.
Introducing us to this natural great wholeness and completeness is the life work of Lama Surya Das and the foundation for his latest book, Buddha Standard Time, leading us to the spiritual realization and enlightenment.
Lama Surya Das will also be doing a book signing at this event. More details to follow.
