The Georgia Meditation Circle an affiliate of the Georgia Meditation Center Dhammakaya foundation promotes meditation and spiritual awareness. It is said that all happiness, ordinary and sublime, is achieved by understanding and transforming our own mind. The mind is not a physical thing that has thoughts and feelings; it is the totality of our conscious and unconscious experiences.
"Unlocking the door of ancient wisdom for modern times"
The mind can be compared to an ocean, and momentary mental events such as happiness, irritation, fantasies, and boredom to the waves that rise and fall on its surface. Just as the waves can subside to reveal the stillness of the ocean's depths, so too is it possible to calm the turbulence of our mind to reveal its natural clarity. The ability to do this lies within the mind itself and the key to the mind is meditation.
