Title: Why be unhappy Location: Amoghasiddhi Kadampa Buddhist Centre Date: Saturday 12th October 10.00 am – 12.30 pm
About the course:
On this half day course
This half day course we will be looking at the reasons why we are so unhappy most of the time and how we try to solve our happiness by using external means. The Buddhist point of view is that our happiness and suffering are states of mind and therefore the solution to our happiness and human problems cannot be found outside the mind. Our happiness is dependent upon our mind, therefore if we understand that our happiness is not dependent upon the weather, our friends & family, we can learn how to change our negative patterns into positive thoughts and feelings by changing our perspective. Then we can begin to transform our mind
“ If something can be remedied why be unhappy about it ? And if there is no remedy for it, There is still no point in being unhappy” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche – Guide to the Bodhisattva’s way of life.
The day will consist of teachings, guided meditations and time to relax and enjoy the World Peace Café.
Everybody is welcome. This course is suitable for all levels of experience.
