How often in life do we dream of getting away? Leaving daily life behind and experiencing some relief from our everyday stresses, anxieties and responsibilities. To find real freedom, we have to go within.
Buddha taught that the nature of our mind is like the sky – vast and unobstructed – and all our thoughts and mental busyness are like clouds. Just as clouds form and disperse within the open sky, so our thoughts and feelings arise and dissolve within the space of our mind. By understanding the nature of our mind we can find real freedom from mental pain.
In this Friday evening talk with Senior Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Dornying, learn how we can create the inner space needed to feel peaceful regardless of external circumstances. Learn to escape within.
Gen Kelsang Dornying is the Resident Teacher of both Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia, Kadampa Meditation Centre Melbourne, Darwin and Alice Springs. He has been teaching Kadam Dharma in Australia for over 18 years. He is an inspiring and light-hearted teacher of modern Buddhism who makes Buddha’s teachings clear, accessible and applicable to modern life.
