Developing Compassion – Study Retreat (Netherlands)

Phuntsok Chö Ling, Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Rotterdam, organizes one week study retreat led by Lama Jigmé Namgyal.

It will take place in the beautiful woods of Oosterhout, Netherland. Lama Jigmé will give profound instructions on developing compassion. As long as we continue to focus primarily on our own desires and needs we can never find true happiness and conquer our negative emotions and disturbances. True happiness arises through benefiting others. That is why compassion is the source of true happiness for ourselves and others.

Fall Retreat 2014 (Netherlands) – Wisdom and Devotion

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

The topic of this year’s fall 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.

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.
