Only by developing our own inner peace can we truly achieve outer peace in the world. By learning to apply the essence of Buddha’s teachings as presented in Venerable Geshe Kelsang’s books can we maintain inner peace even in the everyday busyness of modern life.

Freedom from worry and stress

By developing the capacity of our mind through meditation we can free ourselves from worry and stress and learn how to respond positively to all life’s challenges.

Solve daily problems

Discover the best method to solve our own and others’ problems. By practising Buddha’s teachings on developing genuine love and compassion we can come to experience great joy and harmony in all our relationships.

Discover the true nature of reality

As our mind becomes more peaceful and compassionate we begin to understand that the underlying source of our problems lies in confusion about the way things actually exist. By applying Buddha’s wisdom teachings we can remove this ignorance and see things as they really are.
