ABOUT THE SERIES

We will cover and complete one volume at a time. So far 6 volumes have been published, with more awaiting. Stephan Pende will teach two weekends a year.

ABOUT THE SERIES OF BOOKS:

https://wisdomexperience.org/library-wisdom-compassion/

“His Holiness the Dalai Lama https://www.dalailama.com/ has been publicly teaching Buddhism for decades. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion collects his presentations of every step of the path to enlightenment, compiled and coauthored by one of his chief Western disciples, the American nun Thubten Chodron https://thubtenchodron.org/

The Buddha wanted his students to investigate, to see for themselves whether what he said were true. As a student of the Buddha, the Dalai Lama promotes the same spirit of investigation, and as the rich tradition of the Buddha makes its way into new lands and cultures, His Holiness has recognized that new approaches are needed to allow seekers in the West to experience the relevance of the liberating message in their own lives. Such an approach cannot assume listeners are free from doubt and already have faith in Buddhism’s basic tenets. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series, therefore, starts from the universal human wish for happiness and presents the dynamic nature of the mind. This first volume also provides a wealth of reflections on Buddhist history and fundamentals, contemporary issues, and the Dalai Lama’s own personal experiences. It stands alone as an introduction to Buddhism, but it also provides a foundation for the systematic illumination of the path in the volumes to come.”

Bokcirkel – Bryt vanans makt

Nu drar vi igång vår första bokcirkel!

UPPDATERING!

På kort varsel fylldes vårens första bokcirkel på föreningen där vi ska läsa ”Bryt vanans makt : vinn inre frihet” av Pema Chödrön. Vi kommer starta fler bokcirklar så håll utkik! Det är kul att läsa tillsammans!
Pema Chödrön finns på Youtube där hon ger praktiska och innerliga råd om hur man kan möta sorg och smärta och annat obehag med ett öppet hjärta. För allas skull!

Vi kommer att träffas online varannan söndag, ojämna veckor, med början den 7 mars.
Tid kl.18.00.
Första gången blir ett kort “uppstartsmöte” där vi gemensamt diskuterar hur vi vill lägga upp cirkeln. Det innebär att man inte måste ha läst något tills dess alltså.
Max antal deltagare är sju stycken.
Anmälan och för att få zoomlänk till denna bokcirkel fås genom att maila till  asa@tibetanskbuddhism.se
Boken som vi valt är:

Bryt vanans makt – vinn inre frihet av  Pema Chödrön

160 sidor, ca pris 89 – 169 kr
Om boken:
Bryt vanans makt ger oss en vägledning när inre krav och gamla vanemönster sätter krokben för oss. Pema Chödrön visar insiktsfullt hur vi får syn på dessa inre hinder – de som får oss att gå i baklås eller fastna i oönskade känslo- och tankespår, och hur vi kan hantera dem. Budskapet visar på att hindren kan lösas upp och att vi vinner en inre frihet som öppnar nya möjligheter i livet.

En lättläst och mycket inspirerande bok!

 Välkommen med din anmälan!

De första 15 dagarna av det tibetanska nyåret är den tid då Buddha Shakyamuni utförde mirakel för att öka sina lärjungars förtjänst och hängivenhet.
Det är mycket speciella dagar då effekterna av våra handlingar (dygdiga och icke-dygdiga) multipliceras kraftigt. Därför är detta en mycket gynnsam tid att ägna oss åt alla typer av Dharma-aktiviteter, såsom Dharmastudier, övningar och böner.
