The  Buddha Maitreya Prayer
Maitreya is the Buddha of Love. In Buddhism Love is not merely an emotion, it is rooted in wisdom. It is the ignorance and confusion that causes our states of hatred, restlessness and fear. Love is the natural state of our being. But this state is covered by many layers of confusion and delusion. The text of the prayer is a guideline towards the purification of our mind.
time: 10.00 - 12.00 and 14.30 - 17.00 hrs (both days)
fee: € 50,- (reduction is possible)
Language: English and Dutch

Mindfulness Meditation

On Monday's, 19.00 - 20.15 hrs. 
In these sessions we practice our mind to be clearly aware of the present reality, first of ourselves, but also of our surroundings. This meditation purifies our thoughts and actions.         

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 V-3: combination between 1 and 2
                 - Course V-4: introductory course
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 to bring them to the state of Enlightenment. The qualities of such a practitioner can only be obtained by the development of true Wisdom and devoted practice to abandon any selfcherishing for a very long time.
