The Introductory Course
Pure Mind, Pure World: How We Can Purify Our Mind to Experience Lasting Inner Peace
Saturday, November 10, 10:30am – 12:30pm
The world that appears to us totally depends upon our own mind. If we understand this basic tenet of Buddha’s teachings, then we can also understand how to experience the pure world we all long for; to purify our world, we must first purify our mind.
Due to past negative actions and holding to mistaken views, we are prevented from seeing the natural purity within ourselves, other people and the world around us. Our negative states of mind color what we see and prevents pure objects from appearing to us.
Thankfully, Buddha taught many methods for purifying this negativity, or negative karma. During this introduction to our annual purification retreat, Gen Nyema will teach how we can purify negative karma using meditation, as well as how to purify negative karma within our daily life.
