For English please see below

I denna introduktion får du lära dig om grunderna i buddhismen. Är buddhism en religion eller en vetenskap om sinnet? Vad är lycka? Vad är meningen med livet?

Utforska vad buddhismen säger om meningen med livet och vår sanna natur med Venerable Michael. Under två timmars introduktion får du lära dig om sinnet och dess potential. Vi kommer att utforska varför vi upplever störande känslor och annat lidande i livet. Finns det en väg ut? Buddhismen säger ”ja”! Genom att förändra hur vi uppfattar oss själva och omvärlden kan vi uppnå varaktig och stabil glädje och lycka. Förändring är möjlig på grund av att allting i världen, inklusive vårt eget sinne, är föränderligt. Vi kan uppnå obegränsad medkänsla och visdom.

Vi börjar och avslutar med korta meditationer och det kommer att finnas utrymme för frågor.

Explore what Buddhism says about the meaning of life and our true nature with Venerable Michael. During the two hours introduction you will learn about the mind and it’s potential. We will explore why we experience disturbing emotions and other sufferings throughout life. Is there a way out? Buddhism says “yes”! The way to achieve everlasting happiness is through changing how we perceive ourselves and the world. Change is possible because of the impermanent nature of all phenomena including our mind. We can achieve limitless compassion and wisdom.

We will start and end with short meditations and there will be a Q&A session.
