New Year, New Mind, New You
Happiness and suffering are feelings – parts of our mind – and so their main causes are not to be found outside the mind. If we really want to be truly happy and free from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind and in this way take take control of our mind so we can eliminate our suffering and develop lasting happiness.

Monica Heiser is a student and teacher at KMC Maryland who has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for the past 8 years. While in high school, she became interested in world religions and took a comparative religion class. A senior Buddhist monk spoke to her class, and inspired by his peaceful presence, she decided to go to her local Kadampa Buddhist Center. Since that time, practicing Buddhist teachings have brought Monica incredible joy, inspiration, and meaning to her life and relationships. She is the branch class teacher in Mt. Vernon on Wednesdays as well as the Dharma for Kids Teacher at the temple on Sunday mornings.
