Meditation

What is it?

Meditation is a method of training the mind to focus and concentrate on a specific thought or attitude which causes your mind to become calm and positive. This makes you feel happy about yourself, influence others in a positive way and help you have the capacity to deal with your daily problems in a constructive way.

In Buddhist Meditation we have thousands of different meditations for different situations. You don’t have to be Buddhist to practice and benefit from meditation. Everybody is welcome.

How Meditation

CAN HELP YOU

It can help you to:

  • Control anger and respond in more constructive ways
  • Keep a positive outlook
  • Deal with anxiety and stress
  • Find better ways to deal with daily problems
  • Discover deep inner peace & well-being

The Benefits

of Meditation

When your mind is not peaceful or calm, it is very difficult to be happy or relaxed, even when your surroundings and circumstances are good.

If your mind is peaceful, you will be free from your daily worries, stresses and mental busyness. This allows you to feel relaxed and happy.

If you train in meditation regularly, your mind will gradually become more and more peaceful and you will experience genuine happiness and contentment.

‘The Purpose of Meditation is to make your mind calm and peaceful’, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
