Information om evenemang

IN PERSON & ONLINE Geshe Sherab is very much loved for his profound knowledge of Buddhist philosophy and warm-hearted and gentle attitude. He presents Buddhist teachings in a very accessible and practical way.

Since 2014 Geshe Sherab has been a resident teacher at Thubten Norbu Ling, an FPMT Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Geshe Sherab grew up at Kopan Monastery under the guidance of Lama Yehe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. He completed his Geshe degree at Sera Jey Monastery in south India. Geshe Sherab visited Yeshin Norbu and Tsog Nyi Ling group in Västerås a few times during the last ten years. This year Geshe Sherab is on a European tour after a break due to pandemic.

This weekend Geshe Sherab will give teachings on the Four Noble Truths. The Four Noble Truths contain the essence of the Buddha’s teachings. It was these four principles that the Buddha came to understand during his medittion under the bodhi tree.

  1. The truth of suffering (Dukkha)
  2. The truth of the origin of suffering (Samudāya)
  3. The truth of the cessation of suffering (Nirodha)
  4. The truth of the path to the cessation of suffering (Magga)

”I teach suffering, its origin, cessation and path. That’s all I teach”, declared the Buddha 2500 years ago.

Thus, the Buddha is often compared to a physician. In the first two Noble Truths he diagnosed the problem (suffering) and identified its cause. The third Noble Truth is the realisation that there is a cure. The fourth Noble Truth, in which the Buddha set out the Eightfold Path, is the prescription, the way to achieve a release from suffering.

Ending his weekend teachings on the Four Noble Truths o Sunday, February 18th, we will honour Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s lives by holding a Big Love party starting at 15.00. During this event, Geshe Sherab and Venerable Michael who both grew up near these two precious teachers will share some stories from their lives, as well as the will be opportunities for others to share anecdotes, photos and videos over a cup of tea and cake!
