Train your Mind ~ for Inner Strength & Confidence

We normally spend all our time and energy improving external conditions in our search for happiness and solution to our problems. But the actual correct method for doing this is changing our mind - changing our attitude from negative to positive.

In these 9 drop-in classes, we will learn to train our mind in special positive attitudes or internal qualities - both in meditation and busy daily life. As our mind becomes more positive and peaceful - we will begin to become the happy person we long to be.

Everyone is welcome

Come and be inspired by an uplifting talk, meditation and discussion with good company in the Kadampa Temple for World Peace.

How to Understand the Mind ~ A Practical Guide to developing & maintaining a light positive mind

In this series of classes following the extraordinary book How to Understand the Mind (Part One) by Venerable Geshe Keslang Gyatso, we will begin to develop a clear understanding of the mind. We will discover how to engage in the essence of Dharma practice, by learning how to recognise and abandon states of mind that harm us and replace them with peaceful beneficial states. This is the real purpose of being born human. Invaluable and practical advice for everyone.

The topics will include:

  • What is our mind?
  • How our mind is able to move;
  • The gross, subtle and very subtle minds;
  • Primary Minds and Mental Factors;
    the Five All-accompanying Mental Factors (feeling; discrimination; intention; contact; attention);
  • Five object ascertaining mental factors (aspiration; firm apprehension; mindfulness; concentration and wisdom)
  • Eleven virtuous mental factors (faith, sense of shame, consideration for others, non-attachment, non-hatred, non-ignorance, effort, mental suppleness, conscientiousness, equanimity, non-harmfulness)
  • Six Root Delusions (desirous attachment, anger, deluded pride, ignorance, deluded doubt, deluded view)
  • The Twenty secondary delusions
  • Four changeable mental factors.
