Ehrw. Jigme Thrinley Rinpoche

Wheel of Live – Bhavachakra

Friday 18. October 2024, 18:00 Uhr - Sunday 20. October 2024, 14:00 Uhr; 2 days
Course language: English , Translation to: Deutsch

This is an ongoing teaching. Jigme Thrinley Rinpoche will provide a review of last year’s teaching so anyone is able to join.

During this two-day retreat, Rinpoche will teach on the “Wheel of Life” (Skt: bhavachakra) and how it reflects our current condition.  We will learn how it is possible to move beyond the confines of that condition towards a state beyond dissatisfaction and limitation. The key elements of the Wheel of Life are the 12 links of dependent origination, the 6 realms of existence, and the three poisons of the mind which keep the Wheel of Life in motion.

An understanding of the Wheel of Life is essential to generating motivation for spiritual practice. If we learn to assess our situation clearly we can begin to understand that it is actually possible to escape from this wheel and to attain complete freedom from all unsatisfactory states of mind (duḥkha), to emulate the Buddha and to achieve perfect awakening (bodhi).

With clarity, skill, and humor Jigme Thrinley Rinpoche will explain the Wheel of Life to us in an accessible way. Whether we are beginners or experienced, we will gain momentum in our spiritual practice and learn to apply the teachings in our daily lives.

The costs indicated in the registration form are for accommodation and food in Ganden Chökhor. In addition a donation of 200.– is requested for the teaching. 100% of the teaching offering supports Rinpoche’s travel expenses and Dharma projects in Nepal. No one will be turned away due to their lack of funds.
