How to Understand the Mind - Public Talk

Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong is the General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU) and Acting National Spiritual Director.

Please join Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong Thursday, January 22, 2015 for a talk entitled: How to Understand the Mind. Gen-la Dekyong will inspire us with advice from an expert of the mind: Buddha. Knowing and understanding things seems to be at the tip of our fingers with all the technology that surrounds us these days. We know so many things. Buddha taught that the most meaningful knowledge we can gain in our human life is to understand our mind. If we realize our mind, we free ourself from worries, stress and all other daily problems. In this talk, learn practical tools which will help you to use your mind to create inner peace and find happiness from within.
