Buddhist Psychology for Modern Living

Kelsang Jangchen

Buddhism is a profound and sacred psychology that perfectly explains how the mind works. Learn how to become a master of the mind for more meaningful relationships and greater peace of mind.

“We often say, ‘My mind, my mind,” but if someone were to ask us, ‘What is your mind,’ we would have no correct answer. This is because we do not understand the nature and function of the mind correctly.'”  – How to Understand the Mind, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Meditation:

Begin – Improve – Enjoy!

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we shall be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we shall experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we shall find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we shall experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we shall be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.

 

This half-day class is for those who wish to begin or improve their meditation experience. With practical advice, based on Buddha’s teachings, everyone will learn how enjoyable meditation can be.

 

Everyone welcome. With American Buddhist nun Kelsang Jangchen.
