“The real source of happiness is inner peace. If our mind is peaceful, we will be happy all the time, regardless of external conditions, but if it is disturbed or troubled in any way, we will never be happy, no matter how good our external conditions may be.” Excerpt of the book How to Transform Your Life, By Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Our mind needs profound transformation if we wish to be fully happy, in addition to much purification. Through Tantric meditations, for example, these states can be achieved quickly with a lot of practice. This event is suitable for people who already have some prior knowledge about meditation and / or Buddhism.
