Anyone interested in learning about the Buddhist way of life is welcome to attend a book talk at Taree Library on February, February 8 at 1pm.
The talk will be presented by Mick Marcon, a resident meditation teacher at Losang Dragpa Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Mayfield.
Mick has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for more than 14 years and will visit Taree Library to discuss Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s book How to Solve Our Human Problems.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is a fully accomplished meditation master and internationally renowned teacher of Buddhism who has pioneered the introduction of modern Buddhism into contemporary society.
He is the author of 22 highly acclaimed books that perfectly transmit the ancient wisdom of Buddhism to our modern world and has also founded 1200 Kadampa Buddhist centres and groups around the world.
How to Solve Our Human Problems is an indispensable guide for anyone who wishes to enjoy inner peace and contentment free from the daily pain of stress, frustration and other negative emotions.
Mick will also visit Tea Gardens and Forster Libraries in March to discuss the book and Buddhism.
“In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely,” Mick said.
“Our negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes.
“Buddha's popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths offers a clear and simple solution, guiding us to an oasis of peace within our hearts,” Mick said.
