In Modern Buddhism, Geshe Kelsang says, ‘Buddha taught that the mind has the power to create all pleasant and unpleasant objects.’
Geshe-la also says ‘. . . the world itself is created by mind. There is no creator other than mind.’ An impure world is the result of impure actions, and a pure world is the result of pure actions. One of the most powerful actions we can do to create a pure world is the mental action of making mandala offerings.
On this course Kelsang Gomchen will explain the true nature of the world and how we have the mental power to change it. He will also give essential guidance on the practice of making mandala offerings and show how we can incorporate it into our everyday life.
