Under denna endagskurs kommer Venerable Michael Yeshe att ge en introduktion till Discovering Buddhism-modulen “Transforming problems”. Han kommer att ge en överblick av Ă€mnet som passar sĂ„vĂ€l de som gĂ„r Discovering Buddhism som de som Ă€r helt nya till Ă€mnet. Alla Ă€r vĂ€lkomna!

En av av de centrala idéerna i Buddhismen Àr att vi alla har en otrolig potential. Vi har potential att bli helt fria frÄn alla negativa kÀnslor och  ogynnsamma attityder. Vi har potential att fullt ut utveckla vÄr förmÄga till kÀrlek, medkÀnsla och visdom. Men för att kunna förstÄ den potentialen behöver vi praktiska och anvÀndbara metoder. Vi mÄste arbeta för att utveckla vÄr visdom för att kunna uppnÄ detta.

Denna modul av Discovering Buddhism Ă€r baserad pĂ„ texten Åtta verser om tanketransformation av Langri Tangpa Dorje Sangye. I Ă„tta skarpa och koncisa verser lĂ€r vi oss hur vi omvandlar vĂ„ra tankar och transformerar det vi ser som problem. Det Ă€r hela idĂ©n. Problem förvandlas till orsaken till lycka som ocksĂ„ frĂ€mjar vĂ„r strĂ€van att utveckla och öka bodhichitta, önskan att vakna upp för alla varelsers skull.

“Du mĂ„ste lĂ€ra dig Ă€lska problem lika mycket som du Ă€lskar glass!” som Lama Zopa har sagt.

This module of Discovering Buddhism is based on the text The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation by Langri Tangpa Dorje Sangye. In eight sharp and to-the-point verses we learn how to transform our thoughts, to transform what we view as problems. That is the whole idea. Problems, instead, become the cause of happiness that also furthers our goal of developing and increasing bodhichitta, the precious mind of enlightenment, that enables us to enter the Mahayana path and progress on to enlightenment.

“You’ve got to learn to love problems just as much as you love ice cream!” as Lama Zopa has said.
