Buddhist philosophy and practice – Join whenever you can!

April 30 - May 5

We are overjoyed that the esteemed, learned, and experienced Khenpo Pema Namgyal will visit us in Austria for a week.

We will have several opportunities to learn from him.
He is an expert in Buddhist Philosophy (“Khenpo” is a monastic title that is awarded after extensive study and practice);
he served as the tutor of Tulku Urgyen Yangsi Rinpoche and is attending Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche closely.

Khenpo Pema Namgyal teaches for all levels, very openly and approachable, yet profound.
If you want to clear questions of logic and reasoning, find a philosophical approach to your everyday challenges or go deeper into a sadhana practice- don´t miss the chance!

Tuesday 30th of April:

7 pm Tonglen Tuesday- Khenpola will teach on “Buddha Nature, Emptiness in the context of Lojong”.

Wednesday 1rst of May to Sunday 5th of May: The two and the four truths of Buddhism
For five days, we will have the opportunity to explore the truth of awakening from all angles with Khenpo. While the “two and four truths” could be called the foundational teachings of the Buddha, they also tell us about the ultimate nature of our mind.
We will approach these teachings both by listening to Khenpo-las explanations as well as reflection and meditation practice.
We will have three sessions with Khenpola a day, there will be enough time to relax, reflect and help in the garden (if you wish to). 

Friday 3rd of May: 3 pm Dakini Day Tsok;

Khenpo-la is also an exceptional “Umze” (Ceremony lead). He will guide us skilfully through the feast offering of the Kurukulle practice.

Sunday 5th of May, 3pm to 6pm: Open Meditation and Philosophy afternoon for anyone!

In a relaxed and laid-back manner, we gather together to meditate, learn about and discuss Buddhist Philosophy, clear questions and enjoy each other’s company. If you have been coming to Monday Meditation or Tonglen Tuesday´s and you want to dive a bit deeper into Buddhism and Meditation- this afternoon is for you! Also, if you are a newcomer- please come by. We will finish the afternoon with dinner.
