Current Series: Meditation and Freedom from Painful Emotions
This September we will be focusing on how to use meditation to free ourselves from the painful emotions which cause our suffering. Buddha called these uncontrolled and painful states of mind the delusions. Through the practice of meditation we establish a basic inner peace and joy which gives us the confidence to begin to improve our mind.
