Transforming Problems into Inner Freedom
The Four Noble Truths
We all experience so many problems day after day. Although most of these problems appear to be coming from other people and external situations, according to Buddha these problems are rooted in our own agitated minds such as anger and attachment, known as delusions, When we understand the relationship between our problems and our mind, our difficulties will naturally encourage us to train our mind.
In this way we transform problems into inner freedom. In this series, based on Geshe Kelsang"s book Modern Buddhism, we will explore Buddha's powerful teachings on the Four Noble Truths. We will see how we can skillfully transform not just our everyday difficulties, but even our deeper fears of sickness and death, into the very means for attaining a lasting and joyful inner freedom. These practical teachings and guided meditations will enhance every facet of our life. Everyone is welcome.
