With lakes, mountains, beaches and beautiful cities, North Carolina is one of the most externally beautiful states in the US where it is easy to find places of external peace and tranquility.
Many people in North Carolina have material success and wealth and the resources to enjoy the external beauty, but still experience unhappiness, dissatisfaction, anger, relationship difficulties, and the pain of disappointment in never finding a happiness that lasts or is unchanging.
Happiness and suffering are both states of mind and cannot be found outside the mind.
Through meditation and training the mind to cultivate real happiness and abandon the causes of unhappiness we can definitely find the lasting peace we all long for.
At the Kadampa Meditation Center (KMC) North Carolina in Charlotte with a branch class in Cornelius branch class, the Kosala Buddhist Center in Carrboro, and a branch class from KMC South Carolina located in Asheville Branch KMC SC, we offer meditation instruction; three levels of study programs on Buddhist view for different levels of experience; opportunities for personal and group Buddhist practices and other devotional activities locally.
