About the book we are studying

How To Understand The Mind – The Nature and Power of the Mind 

Fundamental to the entire Buddhist way of life is the teaching that everything depends upon the mind. The world we experience is the result of our karma, or actions, and all our actions of body, speech, and mind originate in the mind. To change our world we have to start by changing our mind, and this depends upon first gaining an thorough understanding of the mind and how it works. In Understanding the Mind, Geshe Kelsang provides a comprehensive explanation of the different types of mind and functions of mind.

Though dealing with a profound and complex subject, this book is immensely practical, at every turn offering clear advice on how we can use our understanding of the mind to improve the quality of our lives and eventually to attain the true mental freedom of enlightenment.



Everyone, whether religious or non-religious, is looking for happiness all the time and wants to be free from problems and suffering permanently. We can fulfill these wishes through understanding and practicing the instructions given in this book. 
– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
