How to Transform your life - by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we can learn how to develop and maintain a peaceful mind, through meditation, we can reduce and eventually cease our experience of problems.
