Talks & ideas

Everyone is welcome to attend this special meditation event in the new year, with internationally-renowned teacher and Buddhist monk, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa.

Everyone wants to be peaceful and happy but very few people understand the real causes of happiness. We tend to think if we had the right house, the right car, the right job and the right friends we would be truly happy, but searching for happiness in this way is making our lives more complicated and dissatisfying. Happiness is a state of mind, so the real source of happiness lies within the mind, not in external conditions.

In this talk, Gen-la Jampa will show how we can use ancient Buddhist wisdom to free ourself from the problems and stresses of modern day life. By putting this advice into practice we will come to experience deep inner peace and a lasting happiness that cannot be disturbed by changing conditions.
