We are delighted to announce that Lama Ole Nydahl will be visiting Hong Kong again in March 2019. There will be a weekend course with Lama Ole Nydahl, Tomek Lehnert (Lama Ole’s student since 1983) and a number of other buddhist teachers from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th March. Topics will include an Introduction to Diamond Way Buddhism, teachings on the ultimate nature of mind or The Great Seal (Mahamudra), and a panel discussion on Meditation in Daily Life (including a longer Q&A session).
We look forward to seeing you there!
Diamond Way Buddhism (with Tomek Lehnert) – Friday 15th March, 7.00pm
Through meditation and integrating the Buddhist view into our daily activities we can develop mind’s inherent power and clarity. “Diamond Way” is a translation of the Sanskrit word Vajrayana and is considered to be the most direct of the three levels of Buddha’s teachings. The Diamond Way helps us discover and develop our inner richness for the benefit of all beings. Tomek Lehnert will present an overview of the teachings, meditations and view found in Diamond Way Buddhism on Friday evening to start our course.
Meditation session – Saturday 16th March, 11.00am
While Buddhism has a deep and coherent philosophy, it primarily follows an experiential path. So join us for a meditation session and see if Diamond Way Buddhism might be interesting for you.
The Great Seal (with Lama Ole) – Saturday 16th March, 3.00pm
The highlight of our weekend course is a session with Lama Ole Nydahl on The Great Seal, the crown jewel of the Buddha’s teachings. It was taught by the Buddha to 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 present his contemporary commentary on the Great Seal on Saturday afternoon, an event not to be missed!
Meditation in Daily Life – Sunday 17th March, 3.00pm
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. 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. On Sunday afternoon, our panel of Buddhist teachers will explain how we can fit meditation practice into our daily lives.
