Featured Event

Happiness: The Fruits of a Controlled Mind

Talks/Lectures, Health & Wellness/Nutrition

The pace and pressures of modern life can, at times, make us feel stressed and irritable. Is it possible to be busy and deeply enjoy our life? By controlling our mind in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to maintain a happy mind regardless of the external circumstances. Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time. When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arise from within.

Changing Perspective:Understanding the World Through the Eyes of Others

Talks/Lectures

“Sufferings are not given to us as a punishment. They all come from our self-cherishing mind, which wishes ourself to be happy while neglecting the happiness of others.” “The self-cherishing mind is also the basis for experiencing all our suffering and problems.” “since beginningless time, we have tried to fulfill the wishes of our self-cherishing mind, believing its view to be true. We have put great effort into seeking happiness from external sources, but have nothing to show for it now.” “When we deeply think that others are important, and that their happiness and freedom are important, we are cherishing others. If we cherish others like this, we shall always have good relationships and live in harmony with others, and our daily life will be peaceful and happy. We can begin this practice with our family, friends and those around us, and then gradually we shall develop and maintain cherishing love for all living beings without exception.” -from the Book: Modern Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. In Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, Shantideva says: “All the happiness there is in this world Arises from wishing others to be happy” In this special day course, Gen Kelsang Wangpo will explain the supreme practices Buddha taught for developing the joyful mind that cherishes others.
