About these classes

We all want to be happy and happiness is within our reach but it is a consequence of how we think and behave. We can find happiness only if we make an effort to do so. This course explains how to identify the minds that will make us happy and how to develop and strengthen these minds in meditation and daily life. Once we understand and master these will be able to protect ourselves from suffering and find genuine peace and joy.

The course is 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.

“Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we really want to be truly happy and free from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind.” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, How to Understand the Mind
