“In his Dharma teachings, Buddha advises us not to seek happiness outside ourself, but to establish it within our mind.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Introduction to Buddhism
What makes Buddhist meditation Buddhist? There are many things that are unique to Buddhist meditation in particular, one of the most important being the Buddhist understanding of the mind. Buddhist meditation is all for the purpose of solving the basic problem of human suffering. Through understanding the mind, and understanding karma, solutions can be found that are not possible otherwise. In these classes, modern Buddhist teacher Cate Fields will introduce the basic foundations of the Buddhist way of life, including teachings on karma, the mind, reincarnation, and of course meditation. Start at the beginning of the series if you can, but if you miss the beginning then start when you are able.
