Learn To Meditate with Gen Dornying | Mini Workshop

$20.00

Meditation is a way of calming the mind, reducing stress and developing a more positive approach to life. This course, taught by Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Dornying, provides the perfect opportunity to discover for yourself the inner peace and happiness that naturally arises when our mind becomes still.

This feeling of inner peace will help us to cope with the difficulties of daily life and we will feel warm and well disposed towards other people, thereby improving our relationships.

    The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.

    If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.

    By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances. Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency.

    If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we will be able to eradicate from our mind the delusions that are the causes of all our problems and suffering. In this way, we will come to experience a permanent inner peace, known as “liberation” or “nirvana”. Then, day and night in life after life, we will experience only peace and happiness.
