Buddha said: “You are your own protector, you are your own enemy. If we have deep compassion and wisdom, we can protect ourself from suffering and danger, and so become our own protector; but if we allow anger and ignorance to destroy our happiness and good fortune, we are harming ourself, and so become our own enemy. Whether we are our own protector or our own enemy is our choice, our responsibility.” In this course, learn to use compassion and wisdom to uplift your mind and eliminate negative states of mind such as attachment, hatred and ignorance. Each session will include a lecture, question period and guided contemplation.
