I den hĂ€r första modulen av Discovering Buddhism undersöker vi betydelsen av “sinnet” enligt buddhismen, dess natur och funktion och hur det avgör vĂ„r upplevelse av lycka och lidande. Vi utforskar skillnaden mellan sinnet och hjĂ€rnan, hur sinnet skapar vĂ„ra upplevelser och konsekvenserna av att ha ett sinne som inte har nĂ„gon början eller slut. Du fĂ„r lĂ€ra dig metoder för att omvandla icke-konstruktiva tankar och attityder och utveckla ett mer positivt och lyckligare sinne.

Titta djupt in i ditt eget sinne för att upptÀcka dess natur, dess funktioner och dess djupaste potential. Var beredd att undersöka de speciella tankesÀtt som skapas av din kultur och samhÀlle, utbildning, religiös bakgrund och miljö och den uppfostran du har haft i din familj.

Session 1: Introduktion till sinnet
Session 2: RymdskrÀp, perception och konceptualisering
Session 3: Psykologiska aspekter av sinnet
Session 4: Sutra och Tantra

In this first module of Discovering Buddhism we examine the meaning of “mind” according to Buddhism, its nature and function, and how it determines our experience of happiness and suffering. We explore the differentiation between mind and brain, how mind is the creator of our experiences, and the implications of possessing a mind that has no beginning and no end. You will learn methods to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes and develop a more positive and joyous mind.

Be prepared to look deeply into your own mind to discover its nature, its functions and the profound depth of its potential. Be prepared to look into the particular mind-set generated by your culture and society, education, religious background and environment, and the upbringing you have had within your family.
