Verifying truth & reality

How the mind discerns truth from deception 

March 26-28

In our modern world, verification is essential – Verifying our accounts, verifying our identity, verifying our passwords.  So how does our mind verify truth and reality?  The more we understand how our mind knows and realises things, the more we can understand how to gain authentic, verified spiritual realisations.  This weekend course will explore how the mind experiences full realisations of hidden spiritual truths by moving from believing in things that deceive us (wrong awareness) to believing in things that do exist (correct belief) to actually verifying the truth of things (valid inference) to finally realising the truth directly (yogic direct perceivers).  This course will explain how contemplative meditation works and how profound meditations lead our mind to a deep and verified understanding of hidden truths.  Join us this weekend to explore the mind and see how analytical meditation really works.


Our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Thekchen, is a senior meditation teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition.

Gen Thekchen has been practising and teaching Buddhist meditation for over 25 years under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. He is well known for his ability to present Buddha’s teachings in a simple, practical and often humorous way, making them easy to put into practice in everyday life.
