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.
Twelve Links of Dependent Arising (Samsara – the Wheel of Life)
This teaching depicts the reality of how life is a continual process, dependent on the many links between our mind, physical body and daily life, producing different circumstances and events, both positive and negative. Beginning to understand this, and integrating it into our lives, we begin to recognise that we are able to transform our lives, enabling the removal of fear and confusion, while bringing greater clarity and confidence, eventually reaching our ultimate potential.
