Buddha said that we should not believe his teachings without investigation, but come to understand the workings of our mind and build our faith on the basis of our own experience.
Why do we need faith? A faithful mind naturally leads us to engage in virtuous actions, which in turn create the cause for us to experience happiness. When we develop faith we don’t give up our critical thinking or our free will – we simply learn to see our potential for purity and goodness.
On this course, led by Serlingpa Meditation Center's resident teacher, Gerry Donovan, we will learn how to experiment in the laboratory of our own mind, how to develop pure faith in Buddha through logical reasonings and in this way experience the happiness that we are all seeking.
