We are delighted to announce that Lama Ole Nydahl will be visiting Hong Kong from 27th February to 1st March to give teachings on Meditation and The Great Seal (Skt. Mahamudra / Tib. Chag Chen).
Meditation: The Key to Lasting Happiness
In Buddhism, meditation means “effortlessly remaining in what is.” This state may be brought about by calming and holding the mind, by realising compassion and wisdom, or by working with the body’s energy channels and meditating on Buddha forms. The most effective methods are the constant identification with one’s own potential to be a Buddha and experiencing the richness of every situation in life; both of which are taught in Diamond Way Buddhism. Meditation is focused on fully developing our potential and brings about lasting results for those who not only want to learn about their minds, but have a direct experience of it.
The Great Seal: Limitless Space and Joy
The Great Seal is the crown jewel of the Buddha’s teachings and was taught by him to fully awaken mind’s potential and to seal its enlightened nature, an experience of limitless space and bliss. When one rests in the totality of the seer, what is seen and the act of seeing at all times, the goal, Mahamudra, is reached. Including basis, way and goal, it brings about the direct experience of mind’s enlightened nature. Lama Ole Nydahl will give his contemporary commentary on the Great Seal Wishes, a classic Mahamudra text composed by the Third Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje (1284–1339).
The weekend course will start with an introductory talk on Friday evening. Over the weekend, Lama Ole will introduce The Great Seal and the progressive stages which lead to this state. There will be several meditations throughout the course.
We look forward to seeing you there!
