WINTER PROGRAMME

Panchen Otrul Rinpoche’s WINTER TEACHINGS 2018-2019

We are delighted that Ven Lama Panchen Otrul Rinpoche this winter will give  teachings on the:

Fundamental Teachings of the Buddha

These important teachings have been passed down to Ven Panchen Otrul Rinpoche through a pure, clear Lineage from Buddha Shakyamuni; they are the Foundation for all of Dharma Practise.   However they cannot be practised through intellectual learning only, as this is an inner journey which can only be understood through meditative stabilisation and the stages of the path, especially with a Teacher who will become a guide. The teachings will provide a different way of experiencing daily problems, apprehension and stress. We will learn that we do inhabit an incredible human form which has potential to become happy and comfortable with our present life and mind.
