These are challenging times with Covid 19, it brings many serious challenges to everyone, like the world has never seen before. It is important we support our FPMT family as much as we can.
This is the reason that Rinpoche is offering these regular teachings, lungs and transmissions by video. They are to protect us, as well as to help us “use” the situation! make it positive, transform it into Dharma. Help us to “use” the situation to our own and others’ advantage, not leaving the teachings just as theory, but to actually put into practice the teachings of the Buddha.
Rinpoche is teaching every other day on compassion, emptiness and lojong. Rinpoche is helping us see how the Dharma gives us the ability to deal with these huge challenges we face. To see how the Dharma gives us the strength, clarity and compassion to manage these difficult circumstances. Rinpoche’s teachings comes from His own deep experience of the Dharma, which inspires our own minds and gives us the strength and courage we all need in these difficult times.
Gradually we will invite our Sangha and teachers to take turns leading these sessions, so it may be a slightly different experience each day.
Bring some positive and healing energy into your day with us.. All are Welcome!
