Change Your Mind, Change Your World
Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Burnley
Saturday 6 April, 10am – 1pm
Buddha taught the things that we experience are not separate from our mind and that we can change our reality by changing our mind. Learn practical meditations for reducing our suffering and experience true peace of mind.
Examine the nature of reality and discover that so much of what we see is simply a projection of our own thoughts. It simply does not exist in the way that we think it does and by realizing this our suffering and problems can come to an end. Of all Buddha’s teachings, none are more transformative than his explanations of emptiness, the true nature of reality. It is through our understanding of emptiness that we can solve all our problems and be of maximum benefit to others.
‘’The purpose of understanding and meditating on emptiness is to release our mind from wrong conceptions and mistaken appearances so that we shall become a completely pure, or enlightened, being’’. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of previous experience. The cost of the workshop is £12.50 (GP Centre Card £5).
Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the workshop. Why not also stay for homemade soup afterwards?
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre and of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 18 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
