buddhism helgkurser

En av de stora fördelarna med att vara ett center anslutet till FPMT är att vi har tillgång till ett stort antal mycket kvalificerade buddhistiska lärare. Dessa inkluderar lärare både ordinerade och lekmän som har spenderat årtionden med att studera och utöva buddhistisk psykologi och filosofi på kloster-universiteten i Indien, Nepal och Tibet samt på buddhistiska lärosäten i väst.

Många av lärarna (som Geshe Sherab, Venerable Robina och Stephan Pende) har kommit till Yeshin Norbu i många år och deras undervisning har varit mycket uppskattade. Det är något mycket speciellt med att få undervisning från någon som ägnar hela sitt liv åt att praktisera. De positiva effekterna kommer från deras djupa kunskap, men lika mycket från deras närvaro och förkroppsligade vänlighet och visdom.

En helg med en besökande lärare innefattar oftast en mix av undervisning och guidade meditationer.
