Becoming Your Own Protector
with Gen Kelsang Namkhyen
In one Sutra Buddha says:
You are your own protector,
You are your own enemy.
Negative states of mind, like anger, jealousy and attachment, are called delusions and are the real cause of our suffering. If we allow them in our mind we are our own enemy. On this retreat we will learn how to identify the delusions in our mind, what the causes of our delusions are, how they develop, and how we can reduce and finally overcome them by developing pure minds like love, compassion and wisdom. In this way we will become our own protector and find real happiness.
