How to Understand the Mind

with Kadam Morten

Kadam Morten Cluasen

Kadam Morten Clausen, Resident Teacher at KMC-NYC, Eastern US National Spiritual Director for the New Kadampa Tradition

A series based on Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s extraordinary book, How to Understand the Mind. What is the mind? How does it work to cognize objects? Where do negative minds come from? How can we reduce and abandon them? How can we improve our concentration and other peaceful minds? How can we transform our mind and our self? What is an enlightened mind? We will answer these questions, and many more, all while learning to meditate in depth on the beautiful and blissful nature of our pure mind.

Ignite Your Potential

Meditation, Mindfulness and the Limitless Nature of the Mind

According to the great meditator yogis of the past, the best method to improve our mindfulness and concentration is the meditation on the nature of the mind. In this series we will explore this deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditation, in particular how to improve our experience of it so that we actualize for ourselves its many benefits. These benefits include: increased mindfulness, concentration, peace, happiness, and insight into the mind’s limitless nature. Through these insights we tap into our extraordinary potential for change and growth, enhanced optimism, patience and purpose, and a solution-oriented mind.

Although each class is self-contained, when taken as a series, the classes will constitute an extraordinary journey into the nature of our mind, reality, and life. Everyone welcome.
