Bodhicaryavatara

by Lama Jigmé Namgyal

The classic treatise, the Bodhicaryavatara, by Shantideva was written in 700 A.D. in Sanskrit, nowadays often translated as “A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life”. It is the most widely read, practiced, and cited text in the whole Tibetan Buddhist tradition. H.H. the Dalai Lama says that this text is the primary source of most of the Tibetan Buddhist literature on the cultivation of altruism and that it teaches the complete Mahayana path to enlightenment.
Shantideva, a Buddhist monk at Nalanda Monastic University in India, where he also composed this text, is one of the most renowned and esteemed figures in the entire history of Mahayana Buddhism.
The Bodhicaryavatara has ten chapters dedicated to the development of bodhicitta (the mind of enlightenment) through the practice of the six perfections (Skt. Pāramitās). 

The coming study year Lama Jigmé Namgyal will give his commentary on this text in the Monday class.

The class is open to all, but Lama Jigmé does expect perseverance, diligence, and self-study from all whom participate and that everyone completes the full study year. At the end of each teaching session there will be the opportunity to ask Lama Jigmé questions regarding this topic. If you are completely new to Lama Jigme’s teachings, then please contact info@tibetculture.lu upon subscribing.

The Moment of Death: Cause of Fear or Opportunity? @ Centre Jean XXIII
Dec 3 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
The Moment of Death: Cause of Fear or Opportunity? @ Centre Jean XXIII

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.
