Meditation is a scientific method to transform human nature from bad to good. Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart.
– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Why do we need to be good? Why shouldn’t we all just stay like we are, each man out for himself, with occasional heroic flashes of selflessness (recorded on social media?)
I don’t know about you, but whatever I see in the news, in history, around me, or in my own life confirms that cutting ourselves off from others, being selfish and mean, doesn’t seem to be a remotely successful strategy for finding lasting happiness or freedom, either individually or collectively.
Instead, the way to develop deeper and deeper happiness is by getting rid of our inner problems – our delusions – and cultivating our boundless potential for good qualities such as love, compassion, patience, and wisdom.
This is the real method to solve our own inner problems – problems of ignorance, depression, anger and so forth – and is also the real method to benefit others practically.
– Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
A happy person is a person who is free from negative thoughts and it connected to others by a mind of love. What are the habits of such a person? Beneficial actions that cherish those around them and create a harmonious society.

“There is no creator other than mind.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Our mind is the creator of our world. Therefore if we have a mind of kindness towards all living beings, the world mirrored back to us is a reflection of that mind, so we see all living beings as kind!
In this series, we will look at how our mind and our imagination lay down the archetypes and models for our world. Through this investigation we will come to understand how by purifying our own mind through changing our perspective we can create a world of kindness for ourselves. Then we will be in a position to share this extraordinarily sublime view with others. Come to one class or all of them!

The profound tools of transformation within Buddhist meditation give us the ability to become the person we wish to be: more dynamic, confident, kinder, more loving, peaceful, and happier. In each series of classes, we explore how we can use Buddhist meditation to stay connected to our pure potential. This connection gives us the ability to enjoy a deeply meaningful, rewarding and happy life.
