Learning from Life (Quad Cities)

How to be Happy, Whatever Happens

Buddha taught that with wisdom, everything that happens in our life can teach us something beneficial and help us improve our mind and our good qualities. Through using our day-to-day difficulties as a special training, we can grow our inner strength, confidence and joy. Eventually we will have a healthy, flexible mind that is happy whatever happens!

Each month, we will learn to transform these difficulties into benefit through wisdom and meditation.
