York University – Modern Buddhism in Action

Wednesday 21 May

7.00pm – 8.30pm  Room: P/X/001

As a York University Alumna, Kadam Lucy is delighted to return to share her experience of Modern Buddhism in action.


Modern Buddhism is the application of the Buddhist paths of compassion and wisdom to modern daily life. It is an international movement without affiliations to any specific country or culture founded by the contemporary Buddhist master Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Modern Buddhism brings the ancient wisdom of Buddha into the modern world free from any cultural trappings and shows how to integrate Buddhist meditation and other practices into our busy lives.

You do not have to be a Buddhist to attend this event or to benefit from it.
