Heruka meditation classes

Heruka Buddhist Centre offers meditation classes on Wednesday evenings. They explain: "If we examine our life we will discover that most of our time and energy is devoted to mundane activities, such as seeking material and emotional security, enjoying sensory pleasures, or establishing a good reputation. Although these things can make us happy for a short time, they are not able to provide the deep lasting contentment that we long for. Sooner or later our happiness turns into dissatisfaction. If our mind is pure and peaceful we'll be happy, regardless of our external conditions. The purpose of meditation is to cultivate those states of mind that are conducive to peace and well-being, and to eradicate those that aren't." Meditation classes: Wednesday nights, 7pm - 8.30pm, Cecil Sharp House, (English Folk Dance & Song Society), 2 Regent’s Park Road
London NW1 7AY. Try a class for £8. Tel: 0208 455 7563 for more details.
