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.

The dates for the 2:nd weekend course and a following summer retreat 2017 based on the same topic will be announced later.

Finding an authentic way to relate to traditional Buddhist practices and texts can be difficult for us in the west. The practices and texts are incredibly powerful, but being from a different cultural context from where the practices originated, makes it difficult to move beyond intellectual understanding and perfunctory repetition towards allowing them to touch our hearts and transform our lives as they are meant to.

For those who are on the Buddhist path, finding ways to work authentically and intimately with practices and texts is very important otherwise much of our study and practice can remain disappointingly superficial. Where we wish to transform to be of benefit, we are still stuck and despite our many hours of study and practice our goal of becoming kinder, gentler more open hearted remains elusive.

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.
