Inner peace, or mental peace, is the source of all our happiness. Although all living beings have the same basic wish to be happy all the time, very few people understand the real causes of happiness. We usually believe that external conditions such as food, friends, cars and money are the real causes of happiness, and as a result we devote nearly all our time and energy to acquiring them. As we know, these things give us only a temporary good feeling and sometimes can lead to problems.
Inner peace is the source of all our happiness. Although we have the same basic wish to be happy all the time, very few people understand how to generate and maintain peace of mind. Connecting the ancient wisdom of Shantideva to modern life, Gen Kelsang Chokyi will share insights into how to use meditation formally and in daily life to abide within inner peace.
