Dallas Museum of Art Presents Creating Happiness: The Art of Peaceful Living with Gen Kelsang Jampa Lecture

. January 5, 2011 . 0 Comments

Within our mind lies an extraordinary potential for inner peace and happiness. Through the simple practice of meditation we can learn to access that potential. In meditation we learn to let go of the agitated states of mind, such as anger, that produce unhappiness, and instead to cultivate peaceful, powerful minds such as love, acceptance, wisdom, and joy. We also learn to transform our day-to-day experiences, especially our conflicts and problems, into opportunities for developing these peaceful minds. In this way, we learn the art of being peaceful and the special skill of creating happiness for ourselves and others.

Gen Kelsang Jampa, an American Buddhist monk, is the Resident Teacher of KMC Texas in Arlington and the NKT-IKBU National Spiritual Director for the U.S.

Presented in partnership with KMC Texas in Arlington on Saturday, January 8
