How to transform your life - ebookGeshe Kelsang’s book “How to Transform Your Life” teaches us how to access the hidden power of the mind, and gives us clear and practical tools with which to transform our daily problems. In these classes, utilising this wonderful text, Gen Lhamo will be drawing on the wisdom of Buddha’s teachings on wisdom and love, so that we can begin responding to problems with a clear, balanced and compassionate mind.

Everyone welcome.

Benefits of Meditation


The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful.


If we train in meditation our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness.


By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enables us to control our mind regardless of external circumstances.
