Our own body and everyone else’s, the world we live in and perceive, and everyone else’s worlds, consists of the five elements.
The elements in our bodies and in the external world affect us in different ways. We influence them and are influenced by them.
Lama PHUNTSOK will give a teaching on the five elements as a basis for the practice:
The special shiné of Kalu Rinpoche
This is a special practice elaborated by previous Kalu Rinpoche. This practice introduce us to the tranquility meditation or peaceful remaining and allows us to approach the essential nature of the five elements (earth, water, fire, wind and space) as that of our own mind.
Friday 8 Nov, 18:30-21:00 – The five elements; The special practice elaborated by previous Kalu Rinpoche
Saturday 9 Nov, 10:00-17:00 (lunchbreak 13:00-14:30) – The five elements; The special practice elaborated by previous Kalu Rinpoche
Sunday 10 Nov, 10:00-16:00 (lunchbreak 13:00-14:30) – Green TARA practice
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.
Everyone is welcome to participate by reciting or just listening to the Green TARA practice!
