About Buddhist Meditation Centre
Avg. Price / day
The Centre is situated in a modern, semi â€“ commercial space in Johannesburg, in the beautiful suburb of Craig-hall Park, where a community of lay and ordained Buddhists practice the Kadampa Buddhist way of life. Classes are held in a peaceful and informal atmosphere within the Colony shopping centre on the upper level, and everyone is welcome to attend. The Centre is open to visitors but please phone in advance to make certain that someone will be there to welcome you. The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will become more peaceful. Taught by qualified Western teachers, the meditation classes are very easy to understand and apply to our daily lives. The classes are suitable for both beginners and advanced meditation practitioners, and emphasise how to meditate and practice in our Johannesburg urban environment. Meditation is a simple yet profound method to improve the quality of our lives and develop inner peace and ultimately attain liberation and enlightenment. Through following very simple, practical instructions we can learn to let go of the causes of our pain and dissatisfaction and to gain the inner peace and clarity we seek. We offer a range of classes from basic introductions to Buddhist meditation, applying Buddhaâ€™s teachings to daily life issues such as anger and improving relationships, to comprehensive study programs of Buddhist view, meditation and action. Everyone is welcome.
