The Tibetan Buddhist center Phuntsok Chö Ling is organizing a study week in Rotterdam on The Eight Consciousnesses. Members of CCT and students of Lama Jigmé can also participate online.
Please find below all information.

The Eight Consciousnesses

Lama Jigmé Namgyal will give teachings during an eight day study week. The teachings are (except for the Friday night) given in the mornings, so there will be a possibility to reflect and meditate in the afternoon. For members of Phuntsok Chö Ling and Centre Culturel Tibetain it is possible to attend the teachings online. The subject of the teachings is: the eight consciousnesses.

The eight consciousnesses are explained in the Buddhist philosophy. They are a classification developed in the tradition of the Yogacara school of Buddhism. The eight consciousnesses are the five senses supplemented by the mind, defilements of the mind and finally kunzi namshe. This last one is the ground consciousness, or storehouse of the mind, which is the basis for the other seven and therefore the basis for our emotions and thoughts, our happiness and suffering. Causes, conditions, and interdependence is necessary for things to arise in the mind; they don’t appear without reason. To free ourselves from suffering we need to first understand the cause of our suffering. To understand the cause of suffering we need to understand our mind and how the eight consciousnesses are interconnected.
