We believe that by simply improving external conditions we can be truly happy. Motivated by this belief most countries have made remarkable material progress. However, as we can see, this does not really make us happier or reduce our problems, but instead causes more problems. Our lives are now more complicated and dangerous and we are less happy and more worried.
Without inner peace there is no real happiness at all. The more we control our minds the more our inner peace increases and the happier we become. Therefore the real method to make ourself happy is to control our own mind.
Odiyana Buddhist Centre is running a 7 week course entitled Discover Meditation. On this course you can learn the actual methods for controlling the mind
Each class comprises 2 meditations and a talk, then discussion over tea and biscuits.
There are classes all across Cheshire and Wrexham
