April 13 - April 17
Karma Schedrub Tschöpel Ling, Mörha Germany, Hofmannshöhe 1

As the teachings about meditation from different Buddhist traditions become accessible in our society, as well as the different adaptations of the now trendy mindfulness practices, confusion grows about what the terms samatha and vipashyana truly cover. Although stillness of mind or the state of nonthought generally is samatha, vipashyana does not depend exclusively upon this state of stillness. Let us explore, and put into practice, the meaning of these two terms and their related meditations in the perspective of…

Le 31 octobre 1997 a eu lieu le parinirvana de Guendune Rinpoché. Cela fait donc 20 ans qu'il a quitté son corps après avoir consacré la dernière partie de sa vie à la transmission du bouddhisme en France et en Europe. Grand accompli envoyé par le Gyalwa Karmapa, il a permis à des milliers d’Occidentaux de s’engager sur la voie du Bouddha et de la pratiquer. Cette année, nous célébrons la mémoire de cet être d’exception par plusieurs événements. Ainsi ai-je entendu…

Découvrir la Clarté de l’Esprit. Méditation sur la Tranquillité et la Vision Pénétrante du Mahamudra

May 5 - May 8
Dhagpo Kundreul Ling, Le Bost
Biollet, 63640 France
+ Google Map

Le Bouddha a enseigné que l'état naturel de l'esprit est clair et éveillé. Pour trouver la paix et l'éveil, nous n'avons pas besoin de chercher ailleurs que là où nous sommes en ce moment. En tant que pratiquants, c'est à nous de démêler les habitudes de l'esprit qui obscurcissent notre conscience et créent la confusion. En faisant cela, nous découvrons l'état éveillé qui est déjà présent en nous. La clé de ce chemin est la méditation. Tout d'abord, nous devons…

Comment Développer une Compassion Authentique pour Soi-Même et pour Autrui?

May 12 - May 13
Karma Euzer Ling, France, 14, rue de Babylone
La Remuée, 76430 France
+ Google Map

Tous les êtres aussi infinis que soit l'espace et qui n'ont pas réalisé leur véritable nature, qui est conscience-existence-béatitude au-delà des trois cercles, demeurent dans la division entre moi et autre et dans un état de souffrance fondamentale. Prendre conscience de notre souffrance et ne pas la repousser, faire un avec, est le but et le moyen pour développer une compassion authentique et équanime pour tous les êtres. Pour un Boddhisattva, celle-ci est omniprésente et n'attend pas la vue de…

The Boundless Creativity of Change. Public Lecture

November 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
West Tisbury Library, 1042 State Rd.
West Tisbury, MA 02568 United States
+ Google Map

The Boundless Creativity of Change Appreciating the whole cycle of impermanence We usually appreciate only half of the cycle of impermanence. We can accept birth but not death; accept gain but not loss. True liberation comes from appreciating the whole cycle and not grasping onto those things that we find agreeable. By remembering the changeability and impermanence of causes and conditions, both positive and negative, we can use them to our advantage. Wealth, health, peace, and fame are just as…

Bodhi Path Natural Bridge, 12 Bodhi Path

"Buddha Shakyamuni gave the 35 Buddhas Sutra as the most effective and expedient method for purifying negativities and accumulating merit. The practice was very widespread in Buddhist India, especially during the time when the Mahayana and Vajrayana– the paths of the Bodhisattva– were flourishing there. Many Buddhists– tantric yogis, scholars, monks and nuns, householder practitioners– chose this sutra among all the available Mahayana sutras and tantras as their preliminary practice or daily practice. Indeed, the great Tibetan master Marpa Lhodrakpa…
