with Kerry Prest
Wednesday 10 Jan, 18:30 – 20.00
In this workshop we will look at what the mind is from a Tibetan Buddhist perspective, and how the mind is polluted by our mental afflictions (mental states such as anxiety, fear, anger, jealousy, desire and depression that cloud the mind and manifest in unwholesome actions).
We will then look at how we can have a healthy and productive approach to removing negative influences in our minds, paying attention to not fall into guilt and self-loathing.
Purifying the mind in Tibetan Buddhism is a joyful practice of liberating ourselves from past negative mental habits and looking into the future with a realistic but sustained effort of healing our minds. We’ll spend some time looking at the practice of Vajrasattva too, a powerful method for removing negative ‘seeds and imprints’ from mind.
“..consciousness, or mind, is like space. The essence of space is its own nature, unmixed with pollution or clouds. The nature of clouds, or pollution, and the nature of space are different—even though pollution pervades space.” Lama Thubten Yeshe
