According to Buddha, the purpose of this life is to learn how to cultivate positive states of mind and let go of deluded states of mind such as anger, jealousy, greed, and attachment, or what Buddha called uncontrolled desire. All these heavy minds cause suffering. We think they’re natural to the mind, but according to Buddha, they are familiar to us but they are not natural. Love, peace, joy, compassion – these are all natural to the mind. They are part of what is known as our Buddha nature.

In this course we will learn simple and direct methods to connect to our potential for enlightenment, our Buddha nature. Through this we will 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.
