Mind and its Functions

Course in six sessions: 17 September - 26 November 2017

In Buddhism the Mind and its many Functions are explained in detail. To study this subject-matter helps us to get a grip on our thoughts, emotions and the actions that follow from these.
If we aspire a spiritual and mental development, it is indispensable to understand what is going on in our mind.  But even if we only aspire a more sane and balanced life, this knowledge will be of great benefit. 
‘Know yourself’ as the adage goes, really means to know the workings of one’s mind, a composed phenomenon that is in constant flux. 
A course in six Sessions; September 17; October 1-8-29; November 12-26
Course fee € 50,-

Buddhist Philosophy Courses (8) in English

Each course comes in 6 sessions , every second Sunday from 18.30 - 20.15 hrs.

The following Courses are given regularly. Please, check other postings or mail us for presently programmed courses.
Course I: this course explains the basic state of our existence, its suffering nature and the cause of it.
Course II: The Ultimate Nature of the phenomena or Emptiness; the Wisdom aspect of the Buddhist teaching.
Course III: The Bodhisattva Path; the path to Enlightenment for the sake of all beings.
Course IV: Practical Meditations on the Path.
Course V: Mind and its Functions. 
                 - Course V-1:on how the mind knows.
                 - Course V-2: on the 51 Mental Factors.
Course VI: The Three Principles of the Path: Renunciation, Bodhicitta, Wisdom.
Course VII: The Ultimate Wisdom: we focus on the 3rd Principle of the Path - the View on the deeper reality of all phenomena. This Wisdom is the key to the liberation from the fundamental ignorance that keeps us bound to the cyclic existence - or samsara, a kind of existence that is permeated by limitation and dissatisfaction.
Course VIII: A Bodhisattva is someone who strives for Full Enlightenment in order to liberate all beings from the state of suffering and bring them to that state of Enlightenment. The qualities of such a practitioner can only be obtained by the development of true Wisdom and devoted practice in altruism for a very long time.
