Transform your life
Tuesdays • 7 – 8:30pm
We should consider how our human life is precious, rare and meaningful.
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the side of the mind. If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development.
Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to transform our life and be free from problems, we must transform our mind.
Each week Gen-la Khyenrab will teach specific topics from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book “Transform your life” that by putting them into practice can lead you to a truly meaningful life.
