Den här kursen handlar om våra medvetande/ sinnet – det som är samsara och nirvana.   Vi undersöker vad ”samsara” är och hur vi har fastnat i det. Och vad är ”nirvana” och hur kan vi komma till det sinnestillståndet. Du lär dig att det finns en väg ut från lidandet och konstant missnöje, dukkha – och du får praktiska verktyg att hantera och eliminera störande känslor.

Hur kan vårt medvetande – som ibland är väldigt rörig och andra gånger mer samlad och ifred med tillvaron – vara både grunden för den extrema dukkha av samsara och den fullkomlighet som tillskrivs för nirvana?
Kunskapen om Buddha-natur – som är en outplånlig del av oss enligt Tibetansk Mahayana Buddhism – är svaret på denna fråga.

Kursen hölls på svenska. Kursinformation på engelska nedan:

Investigate what “samsara” is and how we are stuck in it. Find out what “nirvana” is and how to achieve
it. Develop the determination to be free from suffering and empower yourself with practical tools to deal with and eliminate disturbing emotions forever.




Ideally, for participants of Discovering Buddhism program. But anyone who has some basic understanding of Buddhism is welcome to join this Module.

What will I learn on this course

We will develop the building blocks – conceptual knowledge – about the human condition, pain and suffering, and the path leading to ultimate freedom and happiness. We will reflect upon our own condition and meditate on the types of dissatisfaction and pain that we all undergo throughout the course of our lives.

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.

  • In Tibetan Buddhism, the peacock is a symbol for the bodhisattva, the awakened warrior who works for the enlightenment of all beings. It is said in Buddhists texts that the peacocks are able to kill poisonous snakes while being impervious to their poison, and they possess the power to transmute poison into the beautiful colors in their feathers. In the sam way, we can turn anger and other mental poisons into the path through bodhichitta.

True compassion is aroused by suffering of every sort, by the suffering of every being – it is not tied to right or wrong, attachment or aversion.
