The ancient Buddhist diagram known as the Wheel of Life is much more than a work of art. Contemplation of the most sublime works of art will not produce the benefits gained in contemplating and meditating on the Wheel of Life. In this talk, Gen Kelsang Losel—Buddhist nun and senior teacher at Avalokitshvara Center in Denver—will explain how this brightly colored drawing by Buddha Shakyamuni contains a profound teaching about the entire path to freedom and lasting happiness.

Doors open at 11:30 am.
