Anxiety is a widespread malady and and eventually gives rise to mental exhaustion and despair. Fortunately these experiences are entirely created by our own mind and not external circumstances. ‘Fortunately’ meaning we can change our own mind, but we cannot change all the disagreeable people, places, and things there are in the world. This should compel us to make effort to improve our own mind as quickly as we can. In this way we can derive more enjoyment from our life. Since our human life is short and the methods to improve our life are available, it is unwise not to take advantage of these methods.

Of all Buddha’s teachings none are more profound and meaningful than his teachings on emptiness. Emptiness refers to how reality actually exists as opposed to how it appears to exist. Buddha explained that the two are very different. If we develop a direct experience of emptiness we shall be permanently released from all mental and physical suffering. Whereas with our current perception of reality, it is impossible to achieve such a result. If fact, suffering and problem persist from birth until death. Thus, it is well worth the time and effort to listen, contemplate, and meditate on these instructions. This course will offer such an opportunity.
