Change Your Mind, Change Your World:

This ongoing series will be based on the teachings from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s text: HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE MIND   

This series of  classes offer insight into our mind, and shows how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in every day experiences to improve our lives.

These teachings are meant to be practical guides to developing a deeper understanding of the different aspect of our mind so that we can begin to maintain a light, positive mind. They do this by showing us how to recognize and abandon states of mind that harm us, and to replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones.

Fundamental to the entire Buddhist way of life is the teaching that everything depends upon the mind. The world we experience is the result of our karma, or actions, and all our actions of body, speech, and mind originate in the mind.

To change our world we have to start by changing our mind, and this depends upon first gaining an thorough understanding of the mind and how it works.

In Understanding the Mind, Geshe Kelsang provides a comprehensive explanation of the different types of mind and functions of mind. In this series we will look at several different aspect of the mind that will led to deepening our understanding of our every day experiences.
