We spend our life seduced by the outside world, convinced that happiness and suffering come from “out there.” How can we begin to unpack and unravel the workings of our own mind, so that we can find lasting happiness that is not dependent on external conditions?
Renowned senior Australian nun Venerable Robina Courtin will introduce the third module of the FPMT Discovering Buddhism study program, Presenting the Path.
This course gives an overview of Lamrim, the progressive development of the mind. By understanding these stages, we´ll learn to progress from our limited views to more universal ones. We'll also familiarize with meditations and Buddhist concepts such as Bodhicitta, Karma, Tantra, and wisdom of emptiness.
An evening where Venerable Robina Courtin talks about one of her main teachers, Lama Thubten Yeshe, the founder of FPMT.

Allting, precis allting i livet blir lättare att hantera i och med att vi blir mer förtrogna med våra tankar och föreställningar om vad det än gäller. Detta gäller inte minst våra tankar och känslor om åldrandet och döden. Välkommen till denna 5-veckors diskussionsgrupp.

Mindfulness in the real world
There are many different ideas of what mindfulness is. In Buddhist psychology, mindfulness is simply being able to focus on something without becoming distracted with a mind that is relaxed, stable, and clear.
The opposite of this is having a mind that is tense, distracted, and dull, something we all recognize from everyday life. Imagine going through the day with a completely relaxed mind, being fully focused on all your tasks and everyone you meet and experiencing everything with a brilliant clarity. These are the direct benefits of developing mindfulness.
The true benefit of developing mindfulness, however, is to then apply that mindfulness to our own experience and the world around us. This application of mindfulness leads to insights that help us live more in tune with reality.
On the basis of mindfulness beautiful states of minds like love, compassion, generosity will grow. On the basis of mindfulness we can become more wise and insightful and instead of being constantly tormented by our own minds, we can make our own minds our best friend.

The wisdom of doing nothing
Reading about mind training and cultivating our minds can sound exhausting. Yet another thing on the list of improvement projects next to the failed gym membership and the exhausting need for professional training to keep up in your career.
When we, the people of modernity, when we meet these age old techniques of meditation and mind training, we approach them like everything else in our lives. We want to perform, we want to be the best, we try so hard. Too hard. This becomes our biggest challenge.
We need to cultivate the ability to relax deeply, to let go of all striving, to simply rest in things as they are, to experience contentment without the need to achieve anything. We need to learng to stop “doing” and cultivate “being”.
Come spend a moment of stillness and peace with us. Just sitting quietly together with no agenda, no striving, no need for improvement. Come sit with us in the spirit of kindness, and self-care.
