Event Details

What can we do to strengthen mindfulness, to improve its quality and broaden its scope?

Today mindfulness, or rather secular mindfulness, is seen as a one size fits all technique that can help anyone with a range of issues. While even a very basic mindfulness practice can have positive outcomes.

Buddhism offers numerous ways to strengthen and improve its quality and power. It offers a proactive way to improve the mind – slowly diminishing the Three Toxins – greed, hatred and delusion, and replacing them with generosity, kindness and understanding of reality.

Chand R. Sirimanne was born in Sri Lanka and migrated to Australia in 1990. She has worked as a freelance writer and an ESL instructor for over three decades mainly in Australia but also in Canada and Sri Lanka. Chand currently works as a writer/researcher, and she has written and translated several articles and works on Buddhism.
