We all have an inner optimist!  It’s always hopeful, positive and sees the possibilities our life offers. But is optimism realistic? This depends upon our expectations and goals and also how we live our life.

This course looks at how to live purely following the way of life given in Buddha’s Mahayana teachings. This advice shows how to live purely even though we have a busy life with many demands on our time. It also offers invaluable advice on how to increase our positive minds and good qualities even if we have little time for meditation.

Following this advice, we can live in a realistically optimistic way that enables us to find hope, happiness and meaning in our life.
