The Centre Culturel Tibétain is happy to announce that Lama Jigme Namgyal will give a public lecture on the subject “The Moment of Death: Cause of Fear or Opportunity?”. The lecture will be translated into English by Dr. Dylan Esler. It is possible to follow the lecture online if you cannot be present at the venue.
The Moment of Death: Cause of Fear or Opportunity?
Whether we like it or not, death concerns each and everyone of us. It is not an if but rather a when and a how. According to the Buddha’s teachings, when we die our body returns to dust, yet our consciousness continues. Consciousness is the basic sense of being ‘me’, which in Buddhism is understood as a continuous process of self-grasping. It is this sense of self that is the cause of experiencing both happiness and suffering – in this life, at death, and afterwards. The implication is that, unlike what is taught in other religions, our fate at death is not dependent on divine intervention, but is rather the result of the actions and thoughts that constitute the habits of our consciousness.
As human beings, we have a unique opportunity to prepare for the moment of death. It is like entering a battlefield or other challenging situation: if we are well prepared, there is less cause for concern. Preparing for death means understanding the ways our minds are conditioned by habit. It also means that we can learn to change our habits and to decondition our mind. Through the practice of meditation, we can discover the lasting freedom of inner peace. Far from being a cause of fear, death becomes an opportunity, then, to uncover the true nature of mind, which is beyond habitual conditioning.

We are happy to announce that the CCT is organizing a Chöd study weekend in Luxembourg from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 February 2023
Deep teachings on Dudjom Lingpa’s Chöd
Lama Jigmé will be teaching on the practice of Chöd. Chöd is a Tibetan word that literally translates into ‘cutting through’. It is practiced as a skillful means to cut through obstacles like our own disruptive emotions, also referred to as inner enemies.
Lama Jigmé teaches from a very short and unbroken, authentic lineage. These teachings encompass the essence of the Mahayana and Sutrayana teachings and can give the practitioner direct insight and experience of the understanding of both the relative and ultimate truth as explained in the Buddha’s Heart Sutra (Prajnaparamita) which states that “Form is emptiness. Emptiness is form. Form is not other than emptiness and emptiness is not other than form”.
The study weekend can be followed by those who have previously received the Chöd teachings from Lama Jigmé. However, if you have already some knowledge of Chöd and would like to follow, please contact us.
Registration is only possible until 15 January! Participants will have to attend in person for the full weekend.

In Tibetan Buddhism it is a tradition that students make an additional donation to their teachers for special teachings. For this Chöd teaching, such donations can be done directly to the
Phuntsok Namgyal Ling Foundation. With this you contribute to Lama Jigmé’s project to buy a piece of land where practitioners can do serious retreats and studies.
