About the event
“Happiness and suffering are states of mind and so their main causes cannot be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Solve Our Human Problems
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the side of the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be free from problems, we must transform our mind.
These classes will introduce the nature and power of the mind, using meditation as a tool to control our mind by controlling our desire. Start at the beginning of the series if you can, but if you miss the beginning then start when you are able.
