Changing Our Lives By Changing Our Minds: How We Create Our Own Reality

We spend our lives being seduced by the outside world, believing utterly that happiness and suffering come from “out there.” The experiential implications of this are attachment and neediness, blame, anger, guilt, anxiety, and the rest.

The Buddha’s view is that, even though the outside world plays a huge role - of course it does! - we create our own reality. By becoming deeply familiar with the workings of our own mind, and learning to understand the intricacies of the law of karma - for the Buddha, a natural law - we can gradually loosen the grip of ego-grasping and open up our marvelous potential for clarity, contentment, love, and the other qualities innate within us.

Ven Robina is well known for her no-nonsense teaching style that embodies both great compassion and razor-sharp wisdom. Her teachings are challenging, inspiring and empowering. Featured in the acclaimed film ‘Chasing Buddha’, about her work in prisons, she now travels and teaches full time at the Buddhist centres of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s FPMT.
