All about Karma
A Six Week Online Course in Laguna Beach

Sundays, Sep 24 – Nov 12
9:30 – 11 a.m.

With FPMT Teacher Ven. Gyalten Palmo

Registration Essential.
Registration $108
Includes course notes & materials

One of our Laguna Beach Online Courses. Ven. Palmo will be teaching live from San Francisco and streamed onto our big screen TV at OM Laguna Beach. We will meet six Sundays and listen and participate in the teachings together. Each class will allow plenty of time for Q & A with Ven. Palmo. Cookies, coffee & discussion after class.

Although this course is part of the Discovering Buddhism series, anyone is welcome to attend — you do not have to have attended the previous modules. Each class will consist of teachings, meditations and Q & A with Ven. Palmo. There will also be optional homework and readings each week.

This module will introduce you to the Buddhist concept of karma, the law of cause and effect, and what it means to take personal responsibility. Using examples from everyday life, we will analyze how actions determine their results and cause us to experience either happiness or suffering. We will explore purification practices and establish a daily meditation on karma.



Ven. Gyalten Palmo grew up in San Francisco and started studying Tibetan Buddhism 16 years ago. She has studied closely under Ribur Rinpoche, His Eminence Choden Rinpoche, Geshe Ngawang Dakpa and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and completed FPMT’s five-year Basic Program. In 2012, she was ordained by Choden Rinpoche at Sera Jey Monastic University in India. As an FPMT-registered teacher, she has been teaching Discovering Buddhism regularly since 2013 at Tse Chen Ling, our San Francisco center, since 2013. Ven. Palmo loves studying and sharing the Dharma with others.
