Pure Mind, Pure World – Nov 12, 2016

Temple Day Retreat with the Guest Teacher Gen Kelsang Tenzin

Our mind is often disturbed by painful thoughts and feelings that disrupt our sense of well-being and cause us to disrupt our personal relationships and to experience various kinds of suffering. Buddha teaches us practical methods to purify our mind of this negativity and thus reduce our suffering now and in the future. As our mind becomes purer, our experiences and relationships improve. Eventually, when we completely purify our mind, we will experience a completely pure world. In this retreat, we will learn about and begin to practice purifying our mind.
