Upcoming Events

On Friday, July 10th, as part of our Friday Film Night series, we will be discussing Inside Out, the new animated family movie from Disney/Pixar. You can read a synopsis and watch a trailer here Rotten Tomatoes currently gives the movie a 99% favorable rating.

We're sending out this notice early so that people who would like to participate in the discussion will have time to see the movie beforehand. Inside Out was just released, and is playing at almost every first-run theater in town, but be advised that some shows at peak kid hours are selling out. If you want to make sure that you get into your first-choice show, buy your tickets online or go to the theater extra early!

The movie is an entertaining, but also thought-provoking take on positive and negative emotions, memory and personality, attachment and impermanence, and the nature of the mind. We hope to see you at GSL on Friday, July 10th for what promises to be a lively discussion!

Gaden Samdrupling Buddhist Monastery

BuddhaGaden Samdrupling Buddhist Monastery, founded in 1999, is a community center for Buddhist study, practice, and culture. It is a tiny corner of Tibet transplanted to the West Side of Cincinnati. Historically, a Tibetan town monastery served as a hub of spiritual and communal activity. Community members drew religious and spiritual inspiration from the monastery and provided material support for the monks, who focused their efforts on helping all sentient beings.

GSL Monastery continues this tradition by offering classes, meditation practice and special events for those in the community who wish to learn about or study Tibetan Buddhism as a philosophy for life, a spiritual path or a religious practice. Our teachers offer instruction handed down from Shakyamuni Buddha (“The Buddha”) and passed from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage for over 2,500 years.

All are welcome. Our purpose is not to convert individuals to Buddhism. Rather, our intention in offering the teachings is to assist others in attaining happiness and peace.
