Dear Brothers & Sisters

Sukhihotu. We invite you to the following talk by Bro Billy. Details as follows:-

TOPIC             :           THE MIND–MATTER EXPERIENCE
DATE              :           3rd SEPTEMBER 2011
TIME               :           7:30PM – 9:00PM
VENUE           :           Ti-Ratana Penchala Shrine Hall


To help us realize that our memory and imagination, as well as the way our Mind interprets sensory inputs, distort the realities of our experiences; and to understand how we can better manage this from a Buddhist perspective, to help bring happiness and peace of mind into our lives.


Can we really trust our senses? How does the memory of our fluid past and our imagination of an uncertain future affect our perception of realities?

In this talk, we will review psychological evidence how our mind is easily fooled by our senses, and how memory and imagination distort our perception of realities in life. In the process of experiencing by the organism in an environment, seen from a Buddhist perspective, there is really no mind and there is no matter, there is only experience. It is our unconscious emotional reaction to our experiences that causes insecurity, uncertainty, and instability that lead to “Dukha”. We apply this learning together with the teachings of the Buddha to help bring us happiness and peace of mind.

Videoclips of research findings from the fields of Behavioural Psychology and Neuroscience help enhance this presentation.
