Tulku Jigme Thrinley Rinpoche guides us through this essential traditional Buddhist presentation, 
which on the one hand describes our current life situation in detail and on the other hand makes the access and 
path to liberation accessible. The retreat is accompanied by Rinpoche's guided meditations.
During this 3-day retreat, Tulku Jigme Thrinley Rinpoche draws our attention to the so-called "Wheel of Life" 
(Skt: bhavachakra). This depiction perfectly illustrates our situation: namely, how the cycle of life that holds 
us in its spell is advanced. We We must investigate whether it is possible to escape this hamster wheel and reach 
a state beyond dissatisfaction and limitations. Such an understanding of the complex workings of the wheel of 
life is essential to even being motivated to engage in spiritual practice!

The key elements of the Wheel of Life are: The outermost segment with the 12 links of dependent arising 
(Sanskrit: pratītya-samutpāda; Pali: paṭicca-samuppāda); then the six segments relating to the six states of 
being (Skt: bhava); followed by the ring showing the upward and downward movements resulting from the actions 
of the body, speech and mind; and finally in the hub the so-called three poisons (Sanskrit: triviṣa), 
which keep this wheel of life turning.

It is only by properly assessing our situation that we can see that - and how - it is actually possible to 
escape from this wheel, to attain total freedom from all unsatisfactory states of mind (duḥkha), to emulate 
the Buddha, and to achieve perfect awakening (bodhi). reach.

In his typically lucid way, Tulku Jigme Thrinley Rinpoche explains the wheel of life to us in an accessible way. 
Whether we are beginner or advanced, we gain momentum in our spiritual practice and daily life.
