Information om evenemang

This is the first visit of Geshe Dorji Damdul to Sweden. We are very fortunate to have such a great master visiting our center and giving profound teachings on Buddhist psychology and philosophy.

The Buddhist science of mind has been developing during the last 2500 years. Theories have been tested though analysis, inquiry, and meditation by many generations of scholars and practitioners.

In this practical course you will learn the meaning of the basic concepts of Buddhist psychology such as mindfulness, introspection, attention and how they help cultivate wisdom and compassion, which are the main mental qualities leading to full awakening.

This weekend is a mix of teachings, Q&A, and discussions.

Saturday and Sunday 10-16, donations: Saturday single day 600 sek, Sunday single day 600 sek, both days 1050 sek
