Meditations for World Peace

Meditations for a Meaningful Life

with Kadampa Buddhist Teacher, Kadam Michelle

The New Meditation Handbook is a practical guide to meditation that teaches us how to make ourselves and others happy by developing inner peace, and in this way making our lives more meaningful. Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. Problems, suffering and unhappiness do not exist outside the mind; they are feelings and thus part of our mind. Therefore, it is only by controlling our mind that we can permanently stop our problems and make ourselves and others genuinely happy. Each week we will learn one of the twenty-one Buddhist meditation practices within the New Meditation Handbook.
