"All things are preceded by the mind, led by the mind, created by the mind." (The Dhammapada) Why is it that no matter how much we achieve we still encounter problems? Why does that elusive goal of long-lasting happiness continue to evade us?
From a Bud-dhist perspective the key for experiencing greater men-tal well-being and reducing suffering lies within us: through understanding and training the mind we can come to increase our happiness and decrease the inter-nal sources of suffering. In this course, we will be identifying the qualities of this “final frontier” of exploration – the mind – and explore the way we perceive and interpret the world around us. This is a precise and skilful analysis of the mind and its functions.
It reflects very clearly our mental make-up with all its faults and qualities, and shows how properly training the mind can bring about positive mental states that lead to inner peace and greater happiness. Venerable Tsewang was ordained in 2001. She is a graduate of the 5-year Buddhist Studies Programme, and is currently the Tutor for Advanced Studies at Chen-rezig Institute.
