- The Transformation of Desire, 30 sept – 2 okt
Varmt välkommen till en nystartad kurs i Tantra med Stephan Pende Wormland.
I mer än 15 år har Stephan Pende besökt vår förening med tät regelbundenhet. Genom genuin och personlig erfarenhet och med stor värme, har han under åren inspirerat och fördjupat vår relation till den buddhistiska läran.
Vi är mycket glada att få möjlighet att erbjuda den här undervisningsserien i Buddhistisk Tantra med Stephan Pende Wormland.
The Transformation of Desire
Introduction into Tantra
Based on Lama Yeshe’s book ”The Transformation of Desire” we will explore the foundations of Tibetan Buddhist Tantra.
This weekend will be an introduction into a series of weekends around the practice of Tantra. Between the weekends you will have the possibility to join Zoom meetings to practice together and deepen the material.
Even though tantra is considered by the various Tibetan Traditions to be the most profound and advanced of all Buddhist teachings, Lama Yeshe felt its central message to be simple and clear, and extremely relevant for our times. As he said on many occasions, the West has discovered so many powerful sources of energy in nature but remains unaware of the tremendous force contained within each of us.
The practice of tantra, which is designed to take advantage of this hidden inner resource and utilize it, offers us the opportunity to overcome our limitations and transform our lives into the meaningful, integrated whole that we desire.
Stephan Pende Wormland has studied and practiced meditation in multiple traditions for over 30 years. He was a monk in the Tibetan tradition for 11 years. During that time, he served as director of FPMT’s Nalanda Monastery and spent 5 years in group and solitary retreats. While Stephan’s main teacher is Lama Zopa Rinpoche, he has also received teachings from great Tibetan Masters of the four schools including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Sakya Trizin Rinpoche, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Kirti Thenshap Rinpoche, Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, and Choden Rinpoche. He has also practiced and studied with esteemed Western teachers like Peter Fenner, Alan Wallace, Rob Preece, Alex Berzin, Pema Chodron, Robert Thurman and Ken McLeod. Stephan has been the resident teacher for FPMT’s Center for Wisdom and Compassion in Copenhagen for many years and currently teaches meditation in Buddhist Centers around Europe.

- Practicing the Six Perfections – Ven. Sungrab Woeser
Undervisning online med Ven. Sungrab Woeser – 16/8 och 20/9
Paramita means: ”that which goes beyond ” (Sanskrit). It is traversion to the perfection of virtue. There are six (also ten) virtues as a basis of buddhist practice:
Wisdom/Pacifying, Generosity/Benevolence, Morality/Ethics, Patience/Tolerance, Effort/Diligence, Concentration /Meditation.
In the perfect state these six are the enlightened accomplishments of the inner buddhanature. On the path to inner buddhahood, they are the sole practise of the bodhisattva vow: the aim to develop the perfect virtue for the benefit of all beings. And for us, beings dwelling in samsara, through practicing the six virtues we can realize the liberation from suffering and its causes. Also, it is a means to the accomplishment of the four limitlesses: love, compassion, joy and equanimity.
In these two meetings each participant is encouraged to bring in an example of a daily life hindrance/disturbance by sending an email in advance.
(Send it to Sungrab at : firstname.lastname@example.org )
Then Ven. Sungrab Woeser will discuss these examples on how we can apply the six virtues as antidotes.Ven. Sungrab Woeser will also explain the several levels and practical meaning of the six perfections.During these sessions, Ven. Sungrab will also read the Samathabhadra prayer (in english).
