An Introduction to Buddhist Psychology
Book: How To Understand the Mind
Term 5: June 4th – July 27th
What is the mind and how does it function? Since all of our experiences of happiness and unhappiness depend on our state mind, there is no more important subject to understand than our own mind. Through the practice of meditation, we can learn to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy states of mind. Then we can begin to heal our own mind and become happy all the time.
