Science now shows that meditation and mindfulness really work. For example, we now know that meditation not only lowers stress and improves mental sharpness but it also strengthens our immune system, gives us more youthful and healthy brain tissue, and can be as good or better than prescription drugs for treating mental illnesses like depression, addiction, and PTSD.

Mangala Shri Bhuti is pleased to announce weekly teachings by web conference by Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, Jampal Norbu Namgyel, Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, and senior students of Mangala Shri Bhuti.
 
Dhamma as taught by the Buddha is simple and easy to practice. It is about ourselves and how we can be free from personal suffering. As suffering beings we are deluded about the truths of our body and mind. However, if we practice the Dhamma, we turn our attention to our body and our mind and unveil their true characteristics. Our suffering lessens as we gradually come to understand the Dhamma more and more.
