This December teaching by Ven. Panchen Ötrul Rinpoche will show the story of life from a Buddhist perspective, using the Mandala of the Wheel of Life, which was created by Buddha Shakyamuni.
This is a depiction of the amazing Psychological journey of the Human Mind, from life to life; and carries the essence of the Buddha’s teachings, offering a Liberating view of life which can lead towards compassionate love and happiness without depriving anyone.
This Mandala is always displayed before the doors of every Tibetan monastery.
This winter we are honoured that Ven Panchen Otrul Rinpoche will teach from the text called the ‘Easy Path’.
It was first taught in 1570 AD by the 1st Panchen Lama to an Assembly of monks at Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Tibet, during a summer retreat.
It is a path which can take practising students to the state of Enlightenment.
It is achieved by listening to these teachings, given by a realised Master, with a clear lineage to the Buddha. Then studying and meditating on His teachings and the text.
It is presented here by Ven Rinpoche in a concise form during these Winter teachings.
This teaching is even more relevant today in a World which is confused, angry and stressed, during the continuing search for security, and understanding.
We can learn however, to realise that as Human beings we are extraordinary in our ability. We are able and can learn to be still during meditation. We can find the deep ethical commitment and determination necessary to purify the Mind, so we can develop Love and Compassion for all sentient beings. We can reach that inner energy of the Mind. which will bring freedom from suffering, realising peace and happiness, for this is our own potential.
This Path only then becomes ‘Easy’ when it is internalised and integrated into one’s daily life.
