We are very happy to invite you to a series of talks with Diamond Way teacher Sergey Pozdniakov from Moscow, Russia. Sergey will share his in-depth knowledge with us, giving talks on “The Four Basic Thoughts”, “The Enlightened Mind” and “Love and Partnership”. Details of the program are shown below:
The Four Basic Thoughts
Friday 1 November, 7.00pm
Every Diamond Way Buddhist meditation starts with four essential statements that we use to motivate and remind ourselves why it is so important to practise meditation and to learn more about Buddhism. This talk will introduce and explain these four topics and will end with a guided meditation.
The Enlightened Mind
Saturday 2 November, 3.00pm
As Buddhists, it is important to understand and develop Bodhicitta, the enlightened attitude. Bodhicitta is not a single attribute, it is the combination of many positive attributes such as the application of compassion, kindness, right view and wisdom. Developing these naturally leads us towards enlightenment.
Love and Partnership
Sunday 3 November, 3.00pm
The Buddha didn’t just teach monks and nuns – in fact, a larger part of his teaching was given to people who could take part in one of life’s most interesting and sometimes difficult aspects: love and relationships. This talk will explain the Diamond Way Buddhist view of this exciting topic, and shows how to use our relationships to learn, develop and bring happiness to others.
