One of the most powerful ideas on the spiritual journey is to understand this simple, transformative truth - happiness arises from goodness. The more goodness, or virtue, or positivity, we have in our mind, the happier we will be.
Buddha explained this spiritual law with astounding clarity, and taught specifically how to generate the positive, or virtuous, mental habits that give rise to the joy, confidence, contentment and fulfillment we all seek.
Buddha mapped the mind for us, detailing the spiritual psychology that illuminates the inner paths that lead to happiness and mental freedom. More specifically, in this course, we will explore the 11 principal ways of thinking that lead to happiness as explained within Buddhist psychology.
This course is an excellent introduction to Buddhist psychology and meditation, and is also a perfect opportunity to explore the masterful text, ‘How to Understand the Mind’ written by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
