Meditations for a Happy Life – Sundays at 11am with Gen Khedrub

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful we shall be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we shall experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we shall 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 shall experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually we shall be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.

If you want to learn and develop your meditation practice, join us on Sunday mornings where Gen Khedrub will share powerful Buddhist contemplations to heal and nourish your mind. With more peace in your mind, you can bring more peace and happiness into your world.
