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.
The Noble Eightfold Path
The Noble Eightfold Path is symbolised by the eight spokes of the Dharma Wheel and is a summary of the spiritual development of both mind and physical actions when the teachings are practised and experienced. When the mind is finally awakened and with deepening realisations, the path will lead to nirvana.
