Winter Teachings 2018-19
We are delighted that this winter Ven. Panchen Ötrul Rinpoche will give teachings on ‘The Fundamental Teachings of the Buddha’.
These important teachings have been passed down to Ven. Panchen Ötrul Rinpoche through a pure, clear lineage from Buddha Shakyamuni; they are the foundation for all of Dharma practice. 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 inhabit an incredible human form which has the potential to become happy and comfortable with our present life and mind.
Although each of these teachings is complete in itself, they can be taken together as a course, for they follow on from each other. Meditations are provided during each teaching weekend.
The Four Mindfulnesses
The Four Mindfulnesses is a basic approach to meditation relying on the body, feelings, thoughts and phenomena. As a fundamental part of Dharma teachings they cannot be practised without an understanding of ethical behaviour. They are used to develop awareness of the mind’s addictions to negativities and destructive ways, and also to create a positive mind with the attitudes of love and compassion.
Cost for teaching weekends: Residential: €215. Non-Residential: €160. One-day: €80.
