Meditation involves concentrating on a virtuous object. This means an object that when we concentrate on it makes our mind peaceful and induces a positive frame of mind. We might for example meditate on the preciousness of our human life, love, compassion, patience or deeper objects such as ultimate truth emptiness.
We usually begin a class with a short breathing meditation. This is followed by a talk explaining a practical topic which we can immediately use to help us solve our daily problems and let go of our negative minds. Finally we practise the main meditation which consists of contemplation followed by single pointed meditation on the topic taught in that class
Everyone is welcome to attend the classes, regardless of whether Buddhist or not. You do not need to wear any special types of clothes. Seating is available on chairs or meditation cushions on the floor. We hope you will enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere at Kadampa Meditation Centre Hong Kong.
