Buddha’s teachings are scientific methods for improving our human nature and qualities through developing the capacity of our mind.

In this course, we will cover the scientific methods for training the mind taught by Buddha 2600 years ago.

By gently training in the meditations that calm the mind, we gradually become more peaceful, confident, and happy. With this positive nature, we can bring true benefit to the world around us.

Buddha taught that this world is a reflection or creation of our mind. An impure mind creates the appearance of problems and suffering, whereas a pure mind creates pure experiences and enjoyments.

Through understanding the relationship between our mind and its appearances, we will learn how to create the experience of lasting peace and happiness.

These methods work for anyone, in any country, at any age. Once we have gained experience of them for ourselves we can pass them on to others so they, too, can enjoy the same benefits.
