10 - 11 March: weekend course on Patience

The Importance of Training in Patience
10 - 11 March, Weekend course in English
by Gelong Changchub Phüntsog

Patience is an important quality, for everybody. In Buddhism however, this quality is taught in particular. Patience is the antidote against hatred and dislike. So, if we wish for less aggression and conflict in our lives and in the world, then the only route is to practice patience. This is not a passive attitude, but an active state of wisdom and compassion.

Date and time: 10 - 11 March 2018, from Saturday 14.30 hrs. until Sunday 17.00 hrs.
Venue: temple of Rabten Jigme Ling, Stationsweg 98, Den Haag

5 - 6 May, The 12 Links of Interdependent Origination

The 12 Links of Interdependent Origination

5 - 6 May 2018, weekend course Buddhism – English spoken
by the Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche (see: www.rabten.eu )

The Buddha explains in his teaching that our present existence is unsatisfying; from obvious forms of suffering and pain until states of relative but temporal peace – fundamental and lasting happiness escapes us. The teaching on The 12 Links of Interdependent Origination explains how we mentally create such an existence, life after life, day after day, in fact, each moment of time. When we understand the psychological processes of The Twelve Links we can get a grip on them. We can then turn back the cycle up until the fundamental ignorance which is at its root. In this way we can attain a state of true Liberation.
Date and time: 5 - 6 May, from Saturday 10.00 hrs until Sunday, 17.00 hrs.
Venue: In the temple of Rabten Jigme Ling, Stationsweg 98, Den Haag.

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.
