Please join us for a weekend of talks about Buddhism and their relevance in our modern busy lives.
So, what is Buddhism? The historical Buddha used the best description himself. During the 1,500 years the teachings existed in India, they were called Dharma, and for the last 1,000 years in Tibet, the name was Chö. Both mean “the way things are.”
Understanding “the way things are” is the key to every happiness. Buddha himself is both teacher, example, protector and friend. His teachings allow us to avoid suffering and to enter a state of increasing bliss while also liberating and enlightening others.
Simply put, Buddha’s teachings enable us to experience lasting happiness. By using suitable meditations, our theoretical knowledge turns into direct experience leading to the goal of Buddha’s teachings – the full development of body, speech and mind.
