We have been fortunate to receive teachings from Patrul Rinpoche for many years since 2001 and we are happy to announce, that Rinpoche is visiting us again this year, despite increasingly full schedule with teachings worldwide. Rinpoche is a contemporary Lama with more than 20 years extensive experience of living in the West and teaching Dharma to Westerners. He is humorous, gentle and humble and he transmits Buddha’s profound wisdom in an accessible way to the contemporary Westerners. Rinpoche speaks excellent English.
Bodhisattva’s view and conduct –
how we can bring it into our path and our daily life
Being a spiritual person is being a real, kind-hearted human, here and now. It does not mean we must ignore or neglect the activities of our daily life or abide in a special dimension. The great heart of a Bodhisattva can be seen throughout a person’s daily life. Through seemingly small, but actually profound actions making one’s life most meaningful and wish-fulfilling.
With the Bodhisattva attitude and conduct of the Six Paramitas every action can become Dharma practice in organic way in one’s own life. Getting up in the morning, eating and going to work become acts of a Bodhisattva. With the motivation of developing a kind heart, through our daily activities we can treasure and reinforce the positive qualities, that are already abiding in each one of us.
