About these classes
Without delusions there would be no suffering, only happiness. These minds are the root cause of all unpleasant feelings and pain that we experience throughout our lives. But it doesn’t have to be that way. From Buddha’s teachings we can learn to identify these minds, subdue them and eventually overcome them altogether so they will no longer affect us in daily life.
On this 6 week course, Gen Drolkyi will teach us everything we need to know about these harmful minds, guide us through beautiful meditations, and so, step by step we will be able to eliminate them from our lives altogether. In this way we can find the peace and happiness that we long for.
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
