Rest in Your Heart
Did I ever think I'd be a Buddhist? no. A nun? definitely not.
Did I ever think I'd be in a "group"? no. Was I looking for a spiritual path? no.
So why do I stay? I got knocked over backward by the sheer truth of the Buddha's teachings. It literally changed my life. What I see happen at KPC every day is people visit, or stay, and leave feeling better. More nurtured, Happier. Accepted. Fulfilled.
Do they all become Buddhists? no. But many return again and again and volunteer or just come to meditate, walk, and let the spiritual energy fill them up. It's different for everyone.
The ongoing 24 hour prayer vigil - unbroken since 1985, has helped me stabilize my mind (a long way to go) and find pathways into my own heart. In turn I can love and enjoy others more fully and that increases happiness all around.
We work hard making lunches for homeless, praying (a lot) for those in need, and generally doing our best to make a positive difference in the world. The temple is open 24 hours a day, every day. The Peace Park and meditation gardens are open every day. Come enjoy them. They are for YOU. Use the spiritual energy from dozens of Lamas, and years of spiritual practices combined with that energy brought by those who also want to deepen in their own way. Use it to find peace for yourself, and share it with others.
Thank you for supporting my fundraising campaign, Karen Williams
If you are able, please consider a donation to KPC to help keep the doors open, and the heat (or A/C) on. We want everyone to be able to find happiness. And PLEASE come visit yourself!
