The way things appear to us is deceptive. Although things appear directly to our senses to be truly existent, in reality all phenomena are appearances to mind, like things seen in a dream. There is no greater method for experiencing peace of mind and happiness than to understand and meditate on emptiness, the true nature of reality. Meditation on emptiness is the universal solution to all our problems. It is the medicine that cures all mental and physical diseases, and the nectar that bestows the everlasting happiness of nirvana and enlightenment. With this wisdom, we will be able to live in the conventional world without grasping at it. We will treat it lightly and have the flexibility of mind to respond to every situation in a constructive way.
Although it is beneficial to attend the entire series, you may drop in at any time.
