Modern Buddhism: Meditations to Transform Our Mind
WEDNESDAYS | 6:30-8PM
In recent years our knowledge of modern technology has increased considerably, and as a result we have witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in human happiness.
Happiness and suffering are states of mind and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, we must learn how to control our mind.
In this series, we will explore Modern Buddhism to understand more deeply beneficial Buddhist intentions and views that can solve our human problems. Through practicing Kadam Lamrim in our daily life, we can experience more peace of mind and accomplish the real meaning of our human life.
