How do we solve our problems when things go wrong in our life?  Normally our method is to try to change and control our external conditions and other people.  However, problems and difficulties still keep coming.

When we understand the real nature of our problems are our own unpleasant feelings, negative states of mind, we can solve all our problems through changing those minds.

By learning meditation and special ways of thinking, coming from Buddha's wisdom advice, we will experience for ourselves practical methods to overcome life's difficulties and stress, and increase our inner peace and happiness.
