TUE 12.1. 19.15 - 21.00 TEACHING ON "THE JEWEL LAMP", WRITTEN BY KHUNU RINPOCHE TENDZIN GYALTSEN (1895 - 1977), FOLLOWED BY MEDITATION ON BODHICITTA - KHENPO TASHI SANGPO
From Shantideva's Bodhisattvacharyavatara: "All the suffering there is in this world arises from wishing our self to be happy. All the happiness there is in this world arises from wishing others to be happy. What need is there to say more?
The childish work for their own benefit, the Buddhas work for the benefit of others. Just look at the difference between them."

Description
In this study group we will gradually build the knowledge that will serve as a firm foundation for the practice of the path. To see where we are, to know where we are going, and to understand how we can get there, it is helpful to study the Buddha's teaching in a systematic way. This structured approach is the origin of the Abhidharma tradition. In this course, we will follow a concise yet comprehensive text by the Sakya master Könchog Bang, summarizing the entire process in terms of ground, path and fruition.

SAT/SUN 23/24 JANUARY: "A BOUQUET OF UDUMBARA FLOWERS: AN EXPLANATION OF THE TENTH DAY" - KHENPO TASHI SANGPO
Saturday, 23 January is a very special Guru Rinpoche day called 'Chupen'. For this occasion we will practice the Tsog offering to Guru Rinpoche together. Khenpo Tashi will explain the ritual called the 10th day Practice on the basis of the text called "A Bouquet of Udumbara Flowers: an Explanation of the 10th Day", which includes stories from the life of Guru Rinpoche, explanation of the importance of the 10th day feast offering, explanation of the Tsog practice and its benefits.
Guru Rinpoche was the Indian master who played a fundamental role in the spread of Buddhism in Tibet, mainly because he possessed great power to remove all obstacles.

During the Tsog, those who do not have the Guru Rinpoche's Tsog text, or lack the Guru Rinpoche's empowerment, can recite the "Sampa Nyur Drupma" prayer and concentrate on the Guru Rinpoche's qualities. Download prayer "Sampa NyurDrupma" HERE
Schedule of the seminar: Saturday/Sunday 10.00 - 12.00, 13.30 - 15.30
