Biography of Geshe Gyalten

In 1990, His Eminence Choden Rinpoche gave him the ordination name of Gyalten Kunga and took him as a close personal student. Since then, Geshe-la has followed Rinpoche everywhere like a shadow follows the body. Under Rinpoche’s guidance and instruction, Geshe-la learned the five great classical treaties of Buddhist Philosophy: the Perfection of Wisdom, Middle Way, Logic and Reason, Treasury of Knowledge and Vinaya (monastic discipline) as well as Lam Rim, Mind Training and Tantra at Sera Monastery for 15 years.

Geshe-la received the Geshe Lharampa Degree (equivalent to a PhD in Buddhism) in 2005 and learned Tibetan Medicine. For 11 years, he has traveled with H E Choden Rinpoche around the world to assist Rinpoche and to share his extensive knowledge of Buddhist philosophy, meditation, Tibetan medicine and yoga.

He speaks Tibetan, Hindi, Chinese and English fluently. Geshe Gyalten has established several Dharma centers around the world including in the USA. The warmth of his smile has touched the hearts of thousands.

Buddhistiska biografier

Föredrag tisdagen 12 april 19.00

Jan Bärmark, professor emeritus i vetenskapsteori

Jan Bärmark, professor emeritus i vetenskapsteori

Biografier är viktiga som tröst och inspiration för utövare och icke utövare av den buddhistiska läran. Det tibetanska ordet för biografi, nam par tharpa, betyder ”genom att se förverkligar vi själva”. Genom att se hur män och kvinnor i buddhismen i sina liv målmedvetet arbetat efter att utveckla självkännedom, visdom och medkänsla får vi vägledning och inspiration att göra detsamma.

Föredraget kommer att handla om biografins roll i buddhismen med flera exempel på biografier om kvinnor och män i Kagyutraditionen.

Jan Bärmark är professor emeritus i vetenskapsteori och har bl a varit föreningens ordförande.

Tid:  tisdag 12 april, kl. 19.00
Plats: Föreningens lokal på Linnegatan 21 (samma hus som Hagabion, ingången till höger)
Avgift:  100 kr

Dreaming Lhasa

Karma, a Tibetan filmmaker from New York, goes to Dharamsala, the Dalai Lama’s exile headquarters in northern India, to make a documentary about former political prisoners who have escaped from Tibet. She wants to reconnect with her roots but is also escaping a deteriorating relationship back home.

One of Karma’s interviewees is Dhondup, an enigmatic ex-monk who has just escaped from Tibet. He confides in her that his real reason for coming to India is to fulfill his dying mother’s last wish, to deliver a charm box to a long-missing resistance fighter. Karma finds herself unwittingly falling in love with Dhondup even as she is sucked into the passion of his quest, which becomes a journey into Tibet’s fractured past and a voyage of self-discovery.

Lakha Lama, ”We are the creator”, 26-28 februari

Bästa medlemmar!

Vi har glädjen att meddela att Lakha Lama kommer till vår förening i februari och föreläser på temat; ”We are the creator”

Lakha Lama

Was born in Tibet in 1942 and five years later enthroned as the reincarnated Lama of Batang and thus selected as the spiritual leader of more than 100,000 Tibetans in Eastern Tibet.

In 1959 Lakha Lama fled to India, and for five years was a politician in the in the Tibetan Exile Government together with HH Dalai Lama. In 1976 he left India and came to Denmark.

Lakha Lama as a refugee experienced losing everything. He has made use of the Buddhist philosophy and understanding of the human mind and its deep resources in his daily life, and can therefore pass on this wisdom not only in terms of his knowledge of Buddhism through his studies, but also drawing from his rich personal life experiences.
