Mondays | 18:45 to 21:30 | with Kadam Adam | at Tara Centre
Everyone is welcome to join our Monday Evening Foundation Program (FP) as Kadam Adam gives commentary to the essential Buddhist text How to Understand the Mind. This book offers us deep insight into our mind, and shows how an understanding of its nature and functions can be used practically in everyday experience to improve our lives.
If you are interested in trying out FP, you can attend 3 weeks as a trial to decide if you would like to enroll. If you would like to do this, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joining the Foundation Program involves enrolling for a section of a book and then attending all the classes, one of which is an end-of-term exam. Studying in this way gives our lives a meaningful structure and helps us to gain fuller experience of the teachings. You can join the program at any time.
Each class consists of preliminary prayers, guided meditation and a reading from the book with commentary and discussion.
Fee: €40 per month which also entitles you to attend all classes and courses at Tara Centre and its branches.
Based on Buddha’s teachings and the experiences of accomplished meditators, Understanding the Mind offers a deep insight into the nature and functions of the mind. The different types of mind are first described, revealing the depth and profundity of Buddhist understanding of human psychology and how this can be used to improve our lives. A practical guide is then given on developing and maintaining a light, positive mind – showing how to recognize and abandon harmful states of mind, and to replace them with peaceful and beneficial ones. The inspiring discovery we make from this is that we can attain a lasting state of joy, independent of external conditions.
