Introduction to the New Meditation Handbook

About the new The New Meditation Handbook. This practical guide to meditation teaches us how to make ourself and others happy by developing inner peace, and in this way make our lives more meaningful.

Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind.

Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourself and others truly happy.

Tuesdays 

The Joy of Taking and Giving

In this series, continuing with Universal Compassion by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we will look at the meditations and practice of Taking and Giving. 

There are four main benefits of the meditations on taking and giving: they are powerful methods (1) to purify the potentialities of non-virtuous actions that cause us to experience incurable diseases such as cancer; (2) to accumulate a great collection of merit; (3) to ripen our potentiality to be able to benefit all living beings; and (4) to purify our mind.

Everyone is Welcome.

TIME: 18:30 – 19:30      TEACHER: Gen Kelsang Mila

Simply Meditate

Meditation is Essential for Human Happiness.

So, we need to practice meditation. The reason is very simple, meditation makes our mind peaceful and when our mind is peaceful, we are happy all the time whatever circumstances we find ourselves in.

Taking Away Suffering

A kind heart is a special mental attitude that cherishes other people at least as much as we cherish ourselves. This is a practical meditation on compassion, which is a sincere wish to protect others from suffering.

We think of the suffering, problems and fears others experience and how they long to be free from them. We visualise other people being completely free from this suffering which gives rise to an experience of deep inner peace and joy.

Sundays

How to Improve your Meditation

A successful meditation practise does not solely rely on what we do when we are sitting on the meditation cushion. Indeed, a successful meditation practice largely relies on what we do with our mind in our day-to-day activities.

Most of our day is spent outside of meditation and as such if we allow our minds to run free during this period it is very hard for us to develop deep levels of concentration during our meditations. We as such need to learn Buddha’s profound methods on how to train our mind during the day, so that all our meditation sessions will be successful and be a true cause of inner peace. 

Join us for this Sunday series, where you will be led in guided meditations and practical teachings on Buddha’s profound teachings. Everybody is welcome and will benefit from attending such sessions.
