We spend our whole lives working hard to fufill our natural wish to be happy. We have countless desires, but no matter how much effort we make we never feel completely satisfied. Buddha taught that this is because our desires do not decrease just because we obtain the people, places and things we wish for. These things do not have the power to give us the deep happiness we seek.
At this one-day course, Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Lhachog will explain how we can learn to recognise, reduce and finally overcome completely the uncontrolled desire within our mind. As we learn to let go of this negative impulse, we become free to enjoy the true contentment that comes from inner peace.
Everybody is welcome to attend this course, regardless of experience. During the day you will receive practical teachings. The course will also include short guided meditations that will give rise to a peaceful feeling in the mind and improve your ability to solve your daily problems effectively. In the last session of the day there will also be an opportunity for questions and answers.
The Teacher of this course is Gen Kelsang Lhachog, the Resident Teacher at the KMC Sydney in Surry Hills. With over 20 years experience in meditation, Gen Lhachog explains Buddha’s teachings in a way that is practical, clear and easy to apply to our daily life.
