About the class
Mindfulness & Meditation
ten weeks per term
Mindfulness is a state of mind. To practice mindfulness means that the mind is conscientious, clear and lucid. Thoughts of greed and anger are quickly detected and renounced, and eventually, only righteous thoughts arise. The mind thinks of the Buddha, the Dharma, the Sangha, and the precepts; the mind is filled with compassion; the mind is not deluded and misguided. By practice in right mindfulness, we eventually have a complete understanding of the Dharma, are willing to do all good without a sense of the “self” doing the deed, or the “other” benefiting from the deed, finally reaching enlightenment.
In the meditation class, we introduce fundamental meditation methods that train our mind to be focused and calm, and some important concepts about meditation to help keep our practice on the right path to achieve its benefits and goals.
