Discovering Buddhism – Transforming Problems

15/04/2023 @ 9:00 am - 16/04/2023 @ 3:00 pm AEST

$60.00

About Event:

“Happiness and suffering are dependent upon your mind, upon your interpretation. They do not come from outside, from others. All of your happiness and all of your suffering are created by you, by your own mind,” says Lama Zopa Rinpoche. .

To transform problems into happiness, we must first reject the attitude of not wanting things to go wrong. Things are always going wrong, and it is utterly useless to be unhappy when they do so, because, if the problem can be fixed, we do not need to be sad. And, if the problem cannot be fixed, being sad cannot help, it only rubs salt into the wound.

With careful guidance and meditation we will be inspired to employ the special techniques of mind training as a means to transform problems into happiness. As Lama Zopa Rinpoche says, we can ‘learn to like problems as much as ice cream!’
