HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE MIND
At these weekly classes, we will be looking at Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book How to Understand the Mind. This book offers us a deep insight into our mind, and shows how an understanding of it’s nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives.
“We often say, ‘my mind, my mind’, but if someone were to ask us, ‘what is your mind?’, we would have no correct answer. This is because we do not understand the nature and function of the mind correctly.” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso How to Understand the Mind
