Introduction to Phowa, Luxembourg, 1-2 October 2022

Phowa (Tibetan: འཕོ་བ) or the transference of consciousness, is a powerful method which enables you, if you practice it well during your life, to transfer your consciousness to a pure field at the time of death. There are many levels of transference. By becoming familiar with this method during your lifetime, the moment of death is no longer something to fear, but rather becomes a moment of spiritual triumph and liberation. As you might know, Lama Jigmé holds some very special instructions from his Phowa master, Akyong Siddhi Tulku, who was an extraordinarily accomplished master of Phowa. It is Lama Jigmé’s deepest wish to share these teachings with those who wish to receive them, and to benefit beings at the most important and most vulnerable moment of their lives, the moment of dying.

Knowledge of Buddhism or experience with meditation is not necessary, the method is suitable for everyone.

In January 2023, Lama Jigmé and Phuntsokcholing will organize a 5-day Phowa studyweek in the Netherlands. If you want to participate, you should follow this introduction first, unless you have previously received Phowa instruction from Lama Jigmé.

In Tibetan Buddhism, students traditionally make a donation to their teachers for special teachings. Such donations can be done directly to the Phuntsok Namgyal Ling Foundation, as it will be a contribution to Lama Jigmé’s project to buy a piece of land where practitioners can do serious retreats and studies.

Monday Course – Bodhicaryavatara

The classic treatise, the Bodhicaryavatara by Shantideva was written 700 A.D. in Sanskrit, nowadays often translated as “A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life”. It is the most widely read, practiced, and cited text in the whole Tibetan Buddhist tradition. H.H. the Dalai Lama says that this text is the primary source of most of the Tibetan Buddhist literature on the cultivation of altruism and that it teaches the complete Mahayana path to enlightenment.
Shantideva, a Buddhist monk at Nalanda Monastic University in India, where he also composed this text, is one of the most renowned and esteemed figures in the entire history of Mahayana Buddhism.
The Bodhicaryavatara has ten chapters dedicated to the development of bodhicitta (the mind of enlightenment) through the practice of the six perfections (Skt. Pāramitās). 

Please find here the information regarding this course.
