In this way we can solve all our daily problems and accomplish the real meaning of our human life. With compassion and wisdom, like the two wings of a bird, we can quickly reach the enlightened world of a Buddha.

Topic for November and December: The Science of Happiness

Buddha taught that happiness and suffering are states of mind. But in our constant search for personal happiness, we turn to external sources which ultimately let us down. In this series, we will explore Buddhist teachings that give clear, precise methods for finding and growing our personal happiness, without ignoring the happiness of those around us. And without having to rely upon external conditions.
Modern Buddhism provides inner scientific methods for improving the quality of our mind and life. This is a unique, practical presentation of Buddhism, modern yet preserving the authenticity and original meaning of these profound teachings. Through gaining experience of these methods we can:
  • Overcome our anger, attachment, and discouragement
  • Increase our compassion and wisdom, and
  • Bring great benefit to our family, our friends and our world
