Everyone needs a friend. A simple act of friendship can light up the darkness. And if you can be a friend to one person, you can befriend and light up the darkness for every living being.

It all starts with a simple and pure wish for another person to experience real happiness and to be free from suffering. When we experience the joyful mind that arises from unconditional love, we naturally wish to experience it again and again until it becomes a spontaneous wish whenever we meet or think about another. As this loving and compassionate mind grows in our heart, we will naturally seek out the wisdom that enables us to accomplish the happiness and freedom of every living being. There is no greater meaning for our human life.

In the teachings of Modern Buddhism we can find perfect methods for becoming the best friend we can be, and for helping others to do the same.

In this event, Gen Kelsang Tilopa gives teachings and leads meditations from Modern Buddhism that enable us to experience the profound inner peace that arises from the wish to be a friend of the world.
