Compassion KBC's Grand Reopening Event!
Normally we seek happiness outside ourself. We try to obtain better material conditions, a better job, higher social status and so forth; but no matter how successful we are in improving our external situation, we still experience many problems and much dissatisfaction. This is because the true source of happiness is inner peace – a calm, clear, and positive state of mind that arises from within through the practice of meditation.
In this talk, Gen Tenzin will guide us to an experience of Buddha’s very profound teaching that our mind has the power to create our world. Through gaining an experience of this wisdom, we will understand how to cultivate a reliable source of happiness within our own mind. Training our mind in this way, we will attain pure and lasting happiness and discover how this experience brings benefit to not only ourself, but also everyone around us.
No prior meditation experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome!
