Geshe Michael Roach Stopping the Mind
Radical Lessons from the Yoga Sutra Friday, October 4
7:00p - 9:30p       
Join Geshe Michael Roach for a talk on Yoga Sutra 1.2. In this philospohical aphorism, Master Patanjali tells us another meaning of yoga - learning to stop the Big Mistake - the mistake of believing things are coming to us, rather than from us.   
The first American to receive a Geshe degree, or advanced degree in Buddhist studies, Geshe Michael has devoted  three decades to translating ancient Buddhist and Indian yoga texts, and conveying their relevance to our lives today!
