Experiencing and dealing with unwanted changes is often a very painful part of life. Instead of allowing adversities to make us unhappy and discouraged, we can use them to enhance our spiritual growth and thereby maintain a pure and peaceful mind all the time. Buddha taught how to develop the minds of patience and love that can happily accept difficulties and harm without blaming others. During this course, we will learn methods for truly enjoying life through an exploration of Buddha’s teachings. This essential wisdom can help us to fully embrace every moment of our lives so we can find real satisfaction and be a true benefit to others.
