“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
In our ordinary life, even though we work very hard to find happiness it remains elusive for us, whereas sufferings and problems seem to come naturally, without any effort.
The principal causes of both happiness and problems are in the mind, not in the external world. If we were able to maintain a calm and peaceful mind all day long we would never experience any problems or mental suffering.
When we meditate, our mind becomes more calm and peaceful, free from worry and anxiety. This is how we can effectively improve the quality of our lives without having to constantly struggle to change the external conditions.
This class will be based on the cd Meditations for a Clear Mind and gives us the opportunity to learn how to meditate and personally experience the benefits of meditation. No previous experience is required.
Everyone is welcome!
