InterFaith Marathon – Run for a United World

InterFaith run for a United World takes place every year as part of ING Night Marathon Luxembourg. It is an inter-religious run in which all ordained ministers and representatives of world religions are invited to participate.

InterFaith organizers about the event:

The aim of this special marathon is to create an international network of running representatives of religions in order to show the world public that religion is not only in the taking place in temples, churches and mosks but to show that various religions have a common goal – world peace. It is also an excellent occasion for bringing together exceptional people with great visions for a better world in peace. In 2010, about 50 representatives of the religions took part in this special project. The oldest participant was the famous 102 year-old runner Fauja Singh. He now holds the Guiness World record in being the oldest marathon runner on the planet!

Spring Retreat 2014 : The meaning of wisdom and devotion

Phuntsok Chö Ling, Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Rotterdam, organizes one week retreat which will be led by Lama Jigmé.

The topic of this year’s spring retreat is Wisdom and Devotion. With regards to wisdom, there are two levels of truth according to Buddhist teachings: relative and ultimate truth. How do we recognise and develop these?

How can their recognition be beneficial for our daily lives? Ultimate reality is obscured by conceptual thought and our dualistic mind. This gives rise to a relative and distorted perception of reality. With his unique sense of humour and ability to translate Buddhist teachings into a Western frame of thinking, Lama Jigmé will clarify this process and increase our understanding of the matter, enriching our practice. Focussing on others through devotion is also of great benefit for our lives. However, this is easier said than done. Throughout the teachings, Lama Jigmé will elaborate on the many benefits of generating devotion – both for ourselves and others – and he will explain the method of practicing this form of altruism.
