Everyone wants happiness in their lives, it is said. Unfortunately, we find that we live a lot of the time with an unhappy mind. Why is this so? What is happiness anyway? Are we looking for happiness in the wrong direction? What can we do to change the dynamic so that we can live with a real and lasting happy mind?
In this session we will explore these questions and more through the lens of Vipassana meditation, the Buddha’s practical approach of treading the Noble Eightfold path which he laid out from his own experience so that we also can live with a happy mind.
All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The dana you give helps to maintain the Library and allows it to offer more teachings on the Dhamma so that others may benefit in the future. It is up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers who spread the Dhamma.
