Detox Your Mind with Gen Kelsang Mila

3rd September 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

R180.00 – R280.00

We all suffer from negative emotions, negative moods and negative thoughts from time to time. And these have a destructive effect on our personal and social life. In fact these negative states of mind underlie all our problems and unhappiness.

Buddha called this inner negativity ‘mental poisons’. Just as we have to detox our body to remove physical toxins, so we need to use meditation to flush out our mental poisons. Only when we are free from these toxic states can we enjoy a truly happy and healthy life.

In this morning course, Gen Kelsang Mila will give teachings on a powerful practice for purifying obstacles – the purification practice of the Thirty-five Confession Buddhas. We will learn how to visualize the Thirty-five Confession Buddhas, what each one helps us to purify, and the  Four Opponent Powers of Purification to actually purify our past negative actions and help us develop a strong and happy mind. We will engage in a guided session of the actual practice to purify our minds. The actual practice is called the Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps, also known as the Bodhisattva’s Confession of Moral Downfalls.
