Ancient wisdom for modern people
Venerable Geshe-la’s message is as simple as it is profound - all the problems in this world originate in the mind, and the solutions to these problems and the causes of lasting peace and happiness are also to be found in the mind.
Only by developing inner peace in our minds through meditation can we solve our own problems and help others to do the same, and in this way create world peace.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition
All living beings have the same basic wish to be happy and avoid suffering, but very few people understand the real causes of happiness and suffering. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness.
Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our human life meaningful.
