The Tibetan Buddhist center Phuntsok Chö Ling is organizing a online Vajrasattva Weekend from 3 to 5 April.
Online Study Weekend | The Healing Meditation of Vajrasattva
Friday 3 until Sunday 5 April 2020
Lama Jigmé Namgyal will give teaching this study weekend on the practice of Vajrasattva. He will teach online and because of that it will be able for everyone to attend this weekend. After you have registered you will get a link for the webinar, so you can attend the teachings from home or anywhere you like.
This practice is a powerful method of purification and has great healing power for body and mind. In these turbulent times, where diseases and fear are playing important roles, it is beneficial to meditate and reflect on the wisdom of this practice.
Through the meditation of Vajrasattva and the process of purification, we are acknowledging that we have knowingly and unknowingly done, said, and thought many things that were not beneficial and were often quite harmful. To maximize the potency of Vajrasattva practice, we rely on what are called the four opponent powers: support, regret, resolution and action.
In the absolute sense there is nothing to be purified, no one purifying, and no act of purification. But since we cannot seem to leave it at that, the defilements and obscurations arise. In the illusory perception of our ego-clinging, we experience endless suffering. Since we feel a need for purification, we have this practice as a relative skillful means.
With years of experience as a teacher in the west, Lama Jigmé Namgyal teaches with humor, practical examples and careful.
The weekend is intended for people that want to know more about this practice and the wisdom behind it. Knowledge of Buddhism or meditation is not needed, the method is suitable for everyone.
If you have any questions or perhaps doubts about whether this weekend suits you well, please contact us at: email@example.com

Worldwide, we are facing a health crisis due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Recently, the virus has also entered the EU and specifically Luxembourg. Yesterday, the Luxembourg Government took extra measures to contain the virus and prevent its spread. This was the reason for the Board of the CTT to assess the situation and to come up with the relevant mitigation measures.
After two meetings yesterday, we came to the following conclusions:
Why we came to this conclusion?
We must do our best to reduce the spread of the virus and we definitely do not want to be the cause of others’ illness.
Why no gatherings at all?
To avoid the spread of the virus, there is a need to create a very clear situation for everybody without exceptions.
Why until April 19th?
Since the current term ends at the beginning of April, immediately followed by the Easter holidays, we also close the Centre during this time to allow for a positive change to take place.
What does this mean?
There will be no classes or events at the Centre from now until 19/04. Just before this date, we will evaluate the situation again.
What implications will this have?
Students will receive a separate e-mail with more practical information.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused! We care about your health and safety and hope you understand our decision. Let us do everything we can to reduce the spread of infections and have compassion for all those who are sick or dying due to the virus, including their families. We hope this health crisis will be over very soon, and we look forward to seeing each other before long at the Tibetan Center.
Your Board Team,
Ana, Carlota, Pascal and Henco
