Losar 2021 – Year of the Iron Ox

The Centre Culturel Tibetain wishes you a happy Losar!

Lama Jigmé sends the following message:

Tashi delek!
I wish you all a happy Tibetan New Year. And with happy I mean a calm and peaceful mind.
May you develop more and more mental happiness and good inner values.
Try to keep your relationships warm and healthy. Develop unconditional love or at least try
to understand it. Forgive your loved ones and let go of any family problems. Do you know
how to let them go? It is my wish that you have more harmonious relationships, with
yourself and others. Stop complaining and do meditation.
Happy New Year!

Studyweek: Precious Human Life (PCL online) – 12-19 March

The Tibetan Buddhist Center Phuntsok Chö Ling is organizing an online study week on Precious Human Life taught by Lama Jigmé (12-19 March 2021).
Please find below all information.

Precious Human Life

Lama Jigmé will teach about the Buddhist view on Precious Human Life

Based on the book ‘The Words of My Perfect Teacher”, by Patrul Rinpoche, Lama Jigmé Namgyal will teach on the Buddhist view on Precious Human Life.

The greatest benefit of having a human body is that it brings us the opportunity to attain enlightenment. Without being aware of this preciousness that we have, we might just take it for granted and miss out on the opportunity this brings to end the cycle of endless suffering.

Lama Jigmé will explain the three fundamental types of suffering that we face in this human realm, as well as the other types of suffering that we as humans have to deal with on a daily basis. Especially in this time of corona, we are facing many changes and so we need to learn how to cope with encountering what we do not want and how to handle not getting what we want.

Even though explained from a Buddhist point of view, this subject is relevant and applicable to all, no matter what background or religion you might have.
