About this course

Why me? That’s the question we often ask when we find ourselves immersed in problems. But do we have an actual answer to that question? Or do we just feel unlucky? Or that we’ve been dealt an unfair hand?

Buddha’s teachings on the law of karma give us a clear and practical explanation on why things happen the way they do, and how we can begin to change our experiences from not so great to fantastic. Or at the very least, better. Rather than seeking happiness, we learn to create it. Rather than running from unhappiness, we learn to abandon its causes. Understanding karma puts us in the driver’s seat of our own life.

Everybody welcome!
