How to develop Bodhicitta: Module 10 of Discovering Buddhism

https://yeshenorbu.se/events/how-to-develop-bodhicitta-module-10-of-discovering-buddhism-program/ Discover the clear meditation instructions available in Tibetan Buddhism that enable you to develop your innate qualities of loving kindness and compassion. Become skilled at applying these techniques to generate bodhichitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others, which is the very heart of Buddha’s teachings. Level Intermediate Prerequisite Ideally, for participants of Discovering Buddhism program. But anyone who has some basic understanding of Buddhism is welcome to join this Module. Course description What we believe in Buddhism is that we all have incredible potential. We have potential to become complete human beings. We have the potential to become really awake. By awake, we mean completely free of all disturbances of negative emotions, of harmful attitudes. We have the potential to fully develop our capacity for love, compassion and wisdom. But to be able to realise that potential we need to know methods. We need to work at developing our wisdom in order to be able to achieve this. What will I learn on this course In this course you will be able to get answers to questions like these: What do you mean by awakening? What do you mean by enlightenment? What is that attitude wishing to achieve, or to experience, this full awakening that’s free from suffering, with fully developed positive qualities? What is that attitude, or that state of mind, all about? Why would you want to do that? Why would you want to become enlightened? What’s the point of it? Doesn’t sound so easy to achieve, (it isn’t so easy to achieve), so why would you want to? What are the benefits of it? What will I take away from this course into my daily life The aspiration with this course is that participants will be able to integrate reflection skills into their daily lives. Whenever we are caught up in disturbing emotions, we can reflect on the root cause of our dissatisfaction and difficulties and apply knowledge accumulated in the course to overcome those emotions. By studying about the gradual path to awakening, we develop more conviction that we can free ourselves from suffering and help others do the same. Who is teaching the course Kaisa Kaulanen Kaisa graduated from the FPMT Master Program at ILTK Italy[masked]. She also studied Media & Communication at Stockholm University and at the College of Journalism.

Medicine Buddha Practice

Needs a location

The Medicine Buddha represents a powerful form of enlightened energy. The practices of Medicine Buddha help in healing and accomplishing one’s goals successfully and can be of benefit to someone who is ill or who has died. Offerings of vegetarian food or flowers for the altar and donations are welcome. Donations will be used for future puja activities. It is very important that the elaborate Medicine Buddha puja be done regularly in order to benefit all. Medicine Buddha puja is also something that can be done for people who are dying, or who have already passed away, and also for individual success in all kinds of activities. This Medicine Buddha practice is extremely powerful and beneficial especially when it is done with extensive offerings beautifully arranged. Lama Zopa Rinpoche
