Karma: Cause and Effect



We are very happy to welcome Angelika Tesch to give a talk in Hong Kong. Angelika will give a talk about Karma: Cause and Effect. Angelika is a lay Buddhist teacher and also a close student of Lama Ole Nydahl. She was born in Vienna, Austria and took Buddhist Refuge with Lama Ole in in the same city in 1984.

Normally everybody is taking refuge in something. Some in a Mercedes, others in their families, in being rich, smart, young, etc. But if we look for something lasting, something beyond coming and going, then what can we rely on? The Buddha explained that mind itself is the only source of lasting happiness and the teachings about Buddhist Refuge align us with this. Starting with an understanding of our goal (the Buddha), the teachings which bring us there (the Dharma), and the friends who help us on the way (the Sangha), this talk will explore these teachings and also explain the role of the teacher (the Lama) who is necessary to practice Diamond Way Buddhism.

The talk will start at 7.30pm and will also include a guided meditation for those who are interested in finding out more about meditation. As the talk will take place on our regular meditation evening, we will not charge an admission fee but would be grateful to receive donations to help us to cover travel costs. Our usual event price is HK$100 / HK$50 (for concessions).
