In Search of the Nature of Mind – Young Buddhists Event

Saturday 11th March 2023
10:00am - 1:00pm

Led by Jyotika

An In-Person Event

‘The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.’
John Milton

What is the nature of mind? What are its characteristics, its qualities? Can it be known? Is it like a super-computer, only a little better? Or – in its essence – is it something entirely different, as Milton in the above quote implies?

Using an ancient Buddhist text called The Shepherd’s Search for Mind by the great Tibetan yogi and poet, Milarepa, we’ll explore these questions on the seminar. The morning will be a mix of study, discussion, story-telling and meditation.

Suitable for: Anyone interested in Buddhism who is 30 years or younger.

No charge, just turn up on the morning. Come around 9.30am if you want to join us for tea/coffee and croissants beforehand!

Jyotika began meditating in the mid-90’s while at university where he studied English Literature and Theatre. He joined the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2000. He currently works as Project Manager of Shubha Vihara, overseeing the transformation of an old farmhouse outside Ballina, Co.Tipperary into our first Triratna retreat centre in Ireland. He has taught meditation and led study of Buddhist texts for many years.

All our Young Buddhist events are offered on a donation basis but you might consider making a donation to help us to continue to provide these kinds of events.
