Negative Thoughts and Emotions

a Buddhism in Depth lecture

Following last month’s topic on Positive thought, this month Geshe Jamyang will cover Negative Thoughts and Emotions – also called “afflicted emotions”.  While this topic is related to the others in this lecture series, it will also be suitable and beneficial as a “stand-alone”, so no worry if you have not attended previous talks.

Remaining spirng Nalanda Lectures

Buddhism in Depth by Geshe Jamyang

In general Geshe’s 2015 Spring talks are on the nature of Mind.  These lectures present comprehensive philosophical/psychological models of mind based on classical Buddhist sources.  They draw from ancient Indian/Tibetan Buddhist scholastic sources but may include contemporary scientific contributions.  The talks balance theoretical understanding with application to everyday life.

Here are the topics for the remaining “First Thursday” talks in the spring Nalanda Lecture Series:

  • May 7: Negative Thought and Emotions
  • June 4: Transcendent Model of Mind

We suggest a donation of $15 for these monthly talks, but if not workable, give what you can.
