Nature of Mind

Your mind is your most valuable asset and most dangerous possession. It can be amazingly creative or terrifyingly destructive. Every experience you have, or could possibly have, is mediated through your mind. The health of your mind is the health of your life.

Working to understand the mind, and finding ways of transforming it is a vital part of living a meaningful life, but we must be careful not to allow our efforts to work with the mind to become overly inward-looking. With the Nature of Mind project, we want to do as much as we can to help others in more difficult situations.

Help to support Adhisthana and contribute to altruistic projects.
