Know Your Mind – Part 3
November 13 @ 5:30 am - November 14 @ 12:00 pm PST
Know Your Mind: Intro to Buddhist Psychology – Part 3
A two-day Dharma experience with Ven. Sangye Khadro
Ven. Sangye Khadro continues to teach on how we can change the way we think for greater happiness now and in the future.
According to Buddhism, our mind has unlimited potential. It is the source of both the perfect peace and joy of nirvana and awakening, as well as of the misery and problems of samsara (cyclic existence).
In this course we will explore the mind—what it is, how it is different from the brain, some of the different aspects of our mind (i.e. main minds and mental factors), and its conventional and ultimate natures.
We will also learn practical methods to increase the positive aspects of the mind such as compassion and love, and to decrease the disturbing aspects of the mind like anger and craving.
Missed Part 1 or 2? No problem. You can still join and learn much from this weekend course. You can also watch previous course teachings and meditations here.
