We are honoured that this winter Venerable Panchen Ötrul Rinpoche will give teachings on Mind Training and Recognising the Power of our Minds. These teachings have been passed down to Ven. Rinpoche through a pure clear lineage from Buddha Shakyamuni – teachings that Ven. Rinpoche has practised himself over a vast number of years.
We will learn in detail the great importance of a guide, for the mind functions as both the creator of happiness and unhappiness. Our individual search for the true happiness of peace and contentment is not something new, for it is an integral part of our self. Within each human being is an intangible drive to achieve this state, and can therefore leave us with a sense of loss, failure, and discontentment in our life.
Consequently, the main purpose of these teachings is to describe and reinforce the path, which when practised, will lead us towards the fulfilment of happiness, the inner harmony of peace, compassionate love, and a life of freedom from stress and anxiety.
Cultivating Love and Compassion
Within every human is the potential to develop love and compassion for all other beings, although it is difficult for us to recognise this. Learning to cherish others is a vital aid, not only for others, but for our own mental and physical health, for the path to happiness is an internal journey. Genuine cultivation of love and compassion is an important part of a healthy mind, for it leads to the fulfilment of our potential, feelings of equanimity, and the realisation we are people living together, searching for happiness and peace.
