Purity and Simplicity
Our mind is like a cloudy sky, in essence clear and pure but overcast by the clouds of delusions. Just as the thickest clouds eventually disperse, so too even the heaviest delusions can be removed from our mind. When our mind is free from delusions, negative thoughts cannot arise, and our life feels joyful and uplifted. In this course, we will explore how to keep a peaceful and pure mind even when surrounded by challenges; and so learn to gain control over our life.

Finding Strength through Pure Love
Cherishing others is the best method to solve our own and others' problems. Problems, worry, pain and unhappiness are types of mind; they are feelings and do not exist outside the mind. If we cherish everyone we meet or think about, there will be no basis for developing jealousy, anger or other harmful thoughts, and our mind will be at peace all the time. In this course, we will explore how to keep a peaceful, pure and strong mind even when surrounded by challenges; and so learn to gain control over our life.
