Undersök betydelsen av ”sinnet” enligt buddhismen, dess natur och funktion och hur det avgör vår upplevelse av lycka och lidande. Utforska skillnaden mellan sinnet och hjärnan, hur sinnet skapar av våra upplevelser och konsekvenserna av att ha ett sinne som inte har någon början och inget slut. Lär dig metoder för att omvandla destruktiva tankar och attityder och utveckla ett mer positivt och gladare sinne.

Var beredd att titta djupt in i ditt eget sinne för att upptäcka dess natur, dess funktioner och dess djupaste potential. Var beredd att undersöka de speciella tankesätt som skapas av din kultur och samhälle, utbildning, religiös bakgrund och miljö och den uppfostran du har haft i din familj. Var beredd att bli utmanad.

Examine the meaning of “mind” according to Buddhism, its nature and function, and how it determines our experience of happiness and suffering. 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. 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. Be prepared to be challenged.
