    The Bodhicharyavatara (The way of a Bodhisattva) is one of the most treasured text within the Tibetan tradition. The text was written by the eight-century sage Shantideva. It is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps to cultivate courage, caring and joy – the keys to healing ourselves and our troubled world.

    The path of the Bodhisattva is open to every one of us and during the course we learn the tools and meditations to transform our lives.

    Stephan Wormland is MA in clinical psychology and trained in Gestalt therapy. He has studied and practiced meditation in multible Buddhist traditions for over 30 years. Stephan was a monk in the Tibetan tradition for 11 years, spent five years in meditation retreats, and teaches meditation in Buddhist centers in Europe.

    Teaching on the practice (sadhana) of

    Green TARA

    The teaching will be in English by Lama Phuntsok.

    <

    Practice of the Noble Liberator Green TARA

    Buddhism has many practices of various forms. All of them are intended to dispel the veils that cover the true nature of the mind, the Buddha nature.

    This practice allows the practitioner to enter into a relationship with TARA, the feminine and liberating aspect of the Buddhas, and then to realize her qualities in his own mind.

    TARA is the Liberator, because as immeasurable wisdom, she frees those who realize her from all suffering.

    The practice of TARA will be addressed using the text as a support.

    Friday March 1, 18:30-21:00 (introduction)
    Saturday March 2, 10:00-17:00 (lunchbreak 13:00-14:30)

  • Tibetansk läkare 8 juni
    Föreningen får återigen besök av den tibetanska läkaren Bhuti Losang lördagen 8 juni.
    Tibetansk medicin har sin grund i buddhismen och sinnets balans anses vara en förutsättning för god hälsa. Det finns en helhetssyn på vad som behövs för att hålla sig frisk och läkarna ser helst att patienterna kommer innan obalanser pågått så länge att de blir svåra att bota.
    Bhuti Losang är en kvinnlig tibetansk läkare utbildad i Dharamsala.  Hon bor i Köpenhamn och har besökt oss i många år. Bhuti ger ofta både kostråd och ordinerar tibetanska örtmediciner till sina patienter. Genom åren har hon fått god inblick i vilka speciella problem som drabbar oss med västerländsk livsstil.
    En konsultation kostar 600 kr och medicin för en månad 150 kr (ibland kan man behöva fler mediciner).
    Du kan ställa frågor och boka tid genom att mejla susanne@tibetanskbuddhism.se
