Dwelling deep within our own hearts, and within the hearts of all beings without exception, is an inexhaustible source of love and wisdom - Lama Yeshe
Compassion, the wish that everyone be free of suffering, lies at the heart of Buddhist practice. Developing our compassion helps us to experience increased mental wellbeing and emotional freedom because it lessens our normal self-obsession, which is the source of so many of our problems. It is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and those around us.
In this course Geshela discusses why cherishing others helps us lead happier and more meaningful lives, and teaches practical mind-training techniques that expand our ability to feel concern for and appreciation of others. The course involves teachings, reflections and meditations based on Eight Verses of Training the Mind by Geshe Langri Tangpa . It is suitable for everyone.
Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the Dharma and inspires our community. He became a monk at Sera Je Monastery in India, where he was awarded his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. He began teaching at Chenrezig Institute in 2014 after being chosen for our community by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. He teaches in Tibetan with the help of his professional translator, Ven. Kartson.
Saturday 14th Dec, 9.00am - Sunday 15th Dec, 3.30pm. Held in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute.
