The Noble Rebel – Book Group


Q: Where do The Heart Is Noble and Rebel Buddha meet?
A: At a four-week book group.

Nalandabodhi Seattle| Wednesdays, 7 to 8:30pm—May 20, 27, June 3 & 17

Together, we’ll find the intersections & applications of these two great books.

HeartisNobleFor those who wish to take up its challenge, this book can serve as a guide to being a friend to this planet and to all of us who share it. The Karmapa describes how to see the world as a global community, in which people are linked by their shared concerns for humanity—and their wish to bring about real change. While acknowledging the magnitude of this undertaking, the Karmapa shows us how to go about it, using the inner resources we have already.

Rebel_BuddhaThere’s a rebel within you. It’s the part of you that already knows how to break free of fear and unhappiness. This rebel is the voice of your own awakened mind. It’s your rebel buddha—the sharp, clear intelligence that resists the status quo. It wakes you up from the sleepy acceptance of your day-to-day reality and shows you the power of your enlightened nature. It’s the vibrant, insightful energy that compels you to seek the truth.

Nalandabodhi’s approach is rooted in the Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism, which emphasizes that our natural state is already fully awakened, right now. This path is focused on recognizing our true nature.

Lead by long time students Kris Shaw and Nick Vail. In the Mahabodhi Shrine Room.

The book is available onsite and online at our nalandastore.

All are welcome. Free.
