a tireless teacher
During her visit to Sweden, Gen-la Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, showed a wonderful, inspiring example of a tireless modern Kadampa Teacher, fully dedicating all her activities to the welfare of others.
After the opening ceremony on Friday, and the day course and Heruka Day puja on Saturday, on Sunday she gave a public talk in Stockholm entitled Meditation for everyone.
Gen-la explained that meditation is a mind that is single-pointedly focused on a virtuous object and whose function is to make the mind peaceful and calm.
She then gave clear instructions on how to meditate during our daily activities by keeping our mind focused on virtuous objects such as patience, love and compassion and opposing selfish intention.
We learnt that the real source of happiness is inner peace.
