The great Indian Buddhist master Shantideva said that if we let a wild elephant loose in a populated area it will cause massive destruction, but the uncontrolled wild mind can cause much more harm than such a crazed beast.
On this four week course we will learn about the 20 secondary delusions that come from the root delusions. Through understanding these negative minds that constantly disturb us, we will see why Buddha compared an uncontrolled mind to a wild elephant and be inspired to find peace by gaining control over our mind.
The classes are based on How to Understand the Mind, a practical guide that offers deep insights into the nature and functions of the mind. It explains how to develop and maintain a light and positive mind through recognising and abandoning states of mind that harm us, and replacing them with peaceful and beneficial ones.
