Pure Mind, Pure World
Half Day Course
Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre
Saturday 17 November, 10am – 1pm
Our mind is often disturbed by painful thoughts and feelings that disrupt our sense of well-being and our personal relationships and cause us to experience various kinds of suffering. Buddha teaches us practical methods to purify our mind of this negativity and thus reduce our suffering now and in the future. As our mind becomes purer, our experiences and relationships improve. Eventually, when we completely purify our mind, we will experience a completely pure world.
In this course we will discover different ways on how to purify and in particular learn about the Four Opponent Powers. Through understanding these through meditation practices, we can swiftly eliminate all the negativity from our mind and allow its natural purity to shine through. With a pure mind, we will free ourself from the negativity in our life, enter into a world of purity and come to experience a deep inner peace and lasting happiness.
Day Courses are an ideal way to learn more about meditation and inner peace. They are ideal for those who are new to meditation and those who would like to improve.
The cost of the half day course is £12.50 (GP Centre Card £5). Refreshments are available in our World Peace Cafe during the course.
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.
