Where does our happiness, confidence and freedom really come from? They come from within our own mind. Our imagination has the power to create our whole world. In particular, it is our mind of wisdom that brings us a feeling of being deeply relaxed, free from anxiety. There are many levels of wisdom that we can experience, from seeing more clearly what to prioritize or change in our life to seeing the ultimate nature of things, their emptiness or illusory nature.
In the Heart Sutra, Buddha said that there is no form other than emptiness. The meaning of these words is: Because the real nature of form is the emptiness of form, when we perceive form, in truth we perceive only the emptiness of form, but because of ignorance we cannot understand this.
During this weekend of teachings and meditation Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will guide us to an understanding of these words of wisdom. If we put this advice into practice we can solve our daily problems of uncontrolled desire, anger and ignorance and make our human life meaningful.
Everyone is welcome to this special weekend of teachings and guided meditations with International Buddhist Teacher Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab.
