The Art of Meditation

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.

If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness.

This course is about training in meditation and improving our concentration. Everyone is welcome and can benefit from these teachings and guided meditations.

October 16: Meditation and Inner Peace
