In general, our mind is wild and uncontrolled. This leaves us vulnerable to pain and suffering both great and small. Since we have no idea how to tame our mind we often seek comfort in intoxicants and other negative behaviors that quickly turn into additional sources of misery and despair. Therefore, we need to experience a revolution in our mind, turning upside down its bad habits and ways of thinking, and replacing these with wholesome and virtuous thoughts. This course will explain how to initiate such an internal revolution.
