New Series: How to Understand the Mind

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.
