We fear many things; losing our money, our friends, our reputation.

Buddha said that the only thing we need to fear is an uncontrolled mind.

If a wild elephant was let loose in a populated area it would cause massive destruction but an uncontrolled mind can cause much more harm. The creator of all our sufferings is an uncontrolled mind.

On this course learn to bring this wild elephant of a mind under control
