Connecting to Real Happiness
The Journey from Buddha Nature to Buddhahood
In our culture we often feel that our happiness is on the surface while our unhappiness lurks below and is more reflective of our true nature. Buddha taught simple and direct methods to experience the opposite: happiness is actually at the heart of who we really are, our unhappiness arises from misunderstanding our true nature., and, in fact, each one of us has the potential to fully realize the joyful state of enlightenment.
In this course we will learn simple and direct methods to connect to our potential for enlightenment, known as our Buddha nature. Through this we also learn how to connect with the experience of the mind of enlightenment itself, known as Buddhahood. This enlightened reality is an experience of real happiness that is always available to us. Incorporating these methods into our daily life will help us let go of unhealthy habits of body and mind and connect with an inner sense of joy, love and creativity that we can bring with us into everything we do.
