The mind of enlightenment.
25 Sep kl 18:00 - 19:30

“Enlightenment” is a word that you have probably come across. It has different meanings in different contexts. In the context of Buddhist meditation it describes the ultimate goal and meaning of human life. But what does that mean, and how do we accomplish it? How does an ordinary person become an enlightened being?

“Enlightenment is the inner light of wisdom that is permanently free from all mistaken appearance and whose function is to bestow mental peace, the source of happiness, on each and every living being every day. ” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

In this month’s classes on the Great Scope of Lamrim, we will investigate and meditate upon “the mind of enlightenment” – or “bodhicitta” in Sanskrit – and learn how to develop this mind in the process of attaining enlightenment.

About these classes

This class is part of a 17 week series of classes this season entitled “Training in meditation – a path to a meaningful life”. The class material is based on the book “The Mirror of Dharma – with additions” by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche which explains the step-by-step stages of the path to enlightenment known as “Lamrim” in Tibetan. This structured presentation of Buddha’s teachings is proving very helpful to modern meditation practitioners.

Each class can be attended individually or as part or the series and consists of an explanation of meditation, two guided meditations, a teaching, some discussion and an opportunity to ask questions. As these teachings originate from Buddha, there will be short prayer in English during the class. However, you do not need to be a Buddhist or have any particular belief or faith to join the class and participate. Buddha taught for everyone .

Most people sit on chairs, though some meditation cushions are available. No previous experience is needed and you can “drop-in” to any class on Mondays.

Tea is served from 17.45 and everyone is welcome.
