The Friends Meeting House is a well established building in Bolton and we have been running classes on Silverwell Street for over 10 years. The classes will be held in the Main Hall which is on the ground floor to the right.
Meditation, a Daily Practice
Why do we need to practice meditation? The reason is that the real source of happiness is inner peace. When our mind is peaceful, we naturally experience inner calm and happiness. Meditation is the method to develop the positive qualities of mind, taught in Buddhas teachings, that give rise to inner peace and therefore lead us to experience happiness. This is the same for everyone.
Though drawn from may of Ven Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books, most of what is taught in this class can be found in How to Transform Your Life. A practical manual for daily life that shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, how we can reduce and stop our experience of problems, and how we can bring about positive changes in our lives that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness. This is a significantly revised edition of one of Venerable Geshe Kelsang’s most popular and accessible books.
