Saturday 4th of February

The Meditative Path to Freedom – Mahamudra.

Session 1: 10:30am – 12pm
Session 2: 2:30- 4pm

Thoughts are dynamic and expressive rather than inert, solid or material. The point of meditation is to recognise this, not to find out what mental causes gave rise to mental states. So, the idea is to understand the nature of discursive thoughts themselves.
The insight gained through this kind of investigation is not concerned with WHY we have certain thoughts, it is recognising that those thoughts in themselves have no enduring essence. Freedom from the pervasive aspects of suffering really comes about by understanding this.

Sunday the 5th Of February

Chenrezig – The Practice of Compassion

Session 1: 10:30am – 12pm
Session 2: 2:30- 4pm

Chenrezig is the embodiment of compassion, the wish that all beings be free of suffering and the cause of suffering. Through connecting with this accessible and quintessential practice, The Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche explores how this practice offers, “A complete approach for generating and working with loving kindness and compassion in our everyday lives, making ourselves, and the world, a better place.”

 

The Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist Master of the Kagyu Order. He was trained in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism under many great masters such as HH the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. He took his formal education at Namgyal Institute of Tibetology, Gangtok and Sampurnananda Sanskrit University, Varanasi, India and has served as Professor of Tibetology in Sikkim for 17 years. His doctoral thesis was on the Ecumenical Movement in Tibet.

Since 1990 he has been traveling and teaching Buddhism and meditation at more than 50 Universities, Institutes and Buddhist Centres in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and Asia. He also participates in various interfaith dialogues. He authored several books on Buddhism as well as some children’s books both in Tibetan and European languages.

He founded Bodhicharya (www.bodhicharya.org ), an international organization that coordinates the worldwide activities to preserve and transmit Buddhist teachings, to promote inter-cultural dialogues and educational & social projects. He also founded Rigul Trust which supports his projects in his birthplace, Rigul, Tibet (www.rigultrust.org ).

Rinpoche is the Official Representative of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa for Europe and the Founder of Karmapa Foundation Europe (www.karmapafoundation.eu).
