Meditations for a Clear Mind
Finding Happiness from a Different Source
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
OverviewAn introduction and three simple guided meditations that will help us to experience mental clarity and inner peace by meditating on our mind itself. The first meditation lays the foundation for meditating on the mind by helping to temporarily overcome physical appearances. The second introduces us to the clarity of our mind, and the third is a meditation on our root mind. Together they lead us on a voyage of exploration of our mind through which we can discover our own inner potential for lasting peace and happiness. All these meditations can be practiced by anyone. Background information and guidance is provided in the accompanying 16 page booklet.
