Discovering BUDDHISM at Home
is a dynamic program of study and meditation that provides participants with a solid footing in the practice of Mahayana Buddhism. This program is designed to change your life and not merely as an academic study of Buddhism. By engaging in this program, you will gain an experiential taste of the Buddha's teachings, some retreat experience, and the skills you need to make your life most meaningful.
1. MIND AND ITS POTENTIAL
This first of fourteen subject areas of the Discovering BUDDHISM at Home program examines the nature and function of "mind" and how the mind affects our happiness and suffering. You will explore the difference between mind and brain, mind as the creator of our experience, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. This module will help you learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and create a postive and joyous mind.
