Whatever problem one experiences if one thinks about the benefits of problems and how they are beneficial for ones own life, to develop ones mind in compassion, to develop loving kindness, patience, wisdom, and all the positive qualities for the path to liberation. By thinking of the benefits one develops this precious quality, this most healthy positive way of thinking that brings happiness and that stops you from harming yourself and stops you from harming others.
- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Vajrasattva Practice Day
Start:Saturday, 06 July 2013 08:30 AM
End: Saturday, 06 July 2013 04:00 PM
Duration: 7 and a half hours
Location:Atisha Centre Gompa
8.30-4pm. This day helps purify the mind of negativities. Led by Venerable Jampa.
Without purifying the mind of habitual negative tendencies and energy it is very difficult to make any real progress in meditation. Once we do intense purification, and clean out our previous regretted actions, our mind becomes more clear, lucid and relaxed and it is much easier to gain experiential insight into the meaning of the teachings.
