The purpose of meditation

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful we shall be free from worries and mental discomfort; but if our mind is not peaceful, we shall find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions.”

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Buddha's Teachings - advice for balance, harmony and happiness

Buddha’s Teachings, known as Dharma, are like an inner science that explains, with perfect clarity, the nature and function of the many different aspects of our mind. By applying this understanding we can transform our mind and gain spiritual realisations with which we can solve all our human problems and fulfill all our own and others’ wishes. We can live in our busy, modern world, engaging in normal activities, but seeking happiness from a completely reliable source – from the positive qualities that we have cultivated through meditation within our own mind.

Pure Land Buddhist Centre Meditation classes

“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be acheived unless we first establish peace within our own minds. We can send so-called 'peacekeeping forces' into areas of conflict, but peace cannot be imposed from the outside with guns. Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.”
