About the Day Course
There is no meaning in dwelling on our own suffering. It just leads to greater pain. Transforming pain and suffering into something meaningful is essential in these times as we are constantly surrounded by difficulties. There is no way of avoiding unpleasant, difficult situations but we can change our attitude towards them so they are no longer problems for us. Instead of becoming unhappy and discouraged we can use them to develop powerful, happy minds. In this day course Kelsang Luma will explain various methods to help us transform our everyday appearances of suffering into something immensely meaningful.
