In the time of swiping left or right, love can seem like an unreachable goal. Even if we find love, it turns into boredom or heartbreak. Does love need to be so difficult? The answers are in the ancient scriptures of Nagarjuna.
In the 2nd century CE, the classical author Nagarjuna answered our longing by gathering some of the greatest wisdom on love. He was famous for connecting with the wisdom of snake-like dragons who hoard wealth, jewels, and especially knowledge. These snakes, however, can “charm” us with the special understanding that things are not the way they appear!
This brilliant wisdom of Nagarjuna, now shared with us by Geshe Michael Roach, shows how to give and receive more affection with everyone we meet. Ultimately, love serves a purpose beyond our own close relationships, to make a world full of compassion bigger than we can imagine.
This Valentine’s Day, don’t passively wait to fall in love; take wise action to make sure you have that special love forever and help that dream come true for all.
This event will be supported by your donation. Please contribute to help pay for event expenses and for the teachings! There is a $5 ticketing fee in addition.
