Peace of Mind for the Holidays Meditation Workshop

Kadampa Meditation Center Arizona will host a half-day meditation workshop called Peace of Mind for the Holidays, from 2 to 5 p.m., December 9. The renowned Buddhist master Geshe Kelsang Gyatso wrote, “Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be achieved unless we first establish peace within our own minds.”

“The holiday season is upon us—a time for family and friends, love, generosity and peace. But for many people in this world it is a time of stress, depression, anger and frustration,” says Kelsang Dechok, Education Program Coordinator at Kadampa Meditation Center Arizona. “Now is the time to resolve to keep a peaceful mind during this season in particular.”

Find a meditation cushion or a comfortable chair, and contemplate how everyone experiences suffering and problems and how everyone wants to find real lasting happiness. We are all the same in this respect. Only our ignorance blocks our accomplishing our wish. Allow a loving wish for peace of mind for everyone to grow in your heart and hold it so that it becomes stable. Only by taking that mind out into the world can we begin to create causes for increased peace externally. When our mind is peaceful, we are happy and our peace and happiness has an effect on others.

Location: 5326 E. Pima St., Tucson. For more information, call 520-441-1617, email [email protected] or visit MeditationInTucson.org.
