Meditation: Creating a Peaceful Mind with Elaine Jackson
Mind, or consciousness, is at the heart of Buddhist theory and practice, and for the last two-and-a-half thousand years meditators have been investigating and using it as a means of transcending unsatisfactory existence and achieving perfect peace. It is said that all happiness, ordinary and sublime, is achieved by understanding and transforming our own mind. Mind is the seed of everything.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama said that «meditation is to build up a beneficial state of mind through the power of attentive repetition.» We will unpack this seemingly simple statement. What's a beneficial state of mind? What's attentive repetition? How do we overcome obstacles?
We will share techniques and antidotes, keeping it lively. We'll practice. Practice in Buddhism means meditation. We'll meditate.
