Overcoming Inner Obstacles
Buddha taught that our mind creates our experience of everything, and due to negativity in our mind we experience problems and suffering. Through an understanding of how karma functions we can learn to purify negativity within our mind. Through engaging in these simple, but profound practices, we can remove the causes of our future problems and suffering, as well as obstacles to our spiritual practice. Through purifying the negativity within our mind we will gradually become happier and happier, our good qualities will increase, and all our mental and physical problems will gradually disappear.
Come and enjoy this Monday Night Talk about overcoming our inner obstacles and discovering our potential for pure and lasting happiness.
