Seeing the Best in Others

with Gen Kelsang Lekchog, Resident Teacher of KMC Sheffield 

Buddha taught that what we see depends on the mind with which we see it – in other words we see projections of our own mind. This is true for all things, including people. If we learn to see people with positive minds they will appear in a very different way and we will be able to relate to them in positive ways.

The freedom to Control How We Feel

with Gen Kelsang Jigme Resident Teacher of KMC Liverpool 

Sometimes it seems as if we are defined by our moods and feelings. If we are in a bad mood, for example, we become a certain type of person and behave in a particular way, but if we are in a good mood we are quite a different person and behave quite differently. But we find it difficult to control our feelings and moods and change them from negative to positive. Through meditation, however, we can learn to do this and thus control the kind of person we are.
