Föreningen för tibetansk buddhism i Göteborg, Sweden and Sungrab Woeser, Sakya monk Netherlands, invite to 8 online meetings on
Path of Meditation
View permeates meditation. Meditation permeates view.
January – March 2021
‘Path’ means graduated steps towards a destination. In buddhism the path is aimed at liberation from causes of pain and suffering and at abiding in peace of mind.
Meditation is a translation of the Pali word bhavana, meaning development, transference. It changes the fluctuations of disturbing feelings and thoughts into equanimity. This is the common purpose of meditation: to subdue the mind.
The spiritual path of meditation is to enhance one’s motivation for the benefit of all beings, to the end of space. It is the aim for limitless love, compassion and liberation.
There are diverse types of meditation, fitting inner and outer situations in our life. Meditation will lead to desired change when the right kind of meditation is used for the right purpose.
The same is true when techniques are applied correctly and precisely.
The Path of meditation is the assimilation of spiritual aims and correct methods.
Buddha’s views are the warmth of luminosity and of most excellent happiness. They create wholeness and completion. His wisdom guides all beings towards liberation: from ego into selflessness, from dependence into independence, from unprotected into protected, from bondage into liberation.
In this course, we shall study Buddha’s words of wisdom, explore step by step different types of meditation and train in several meditation techniques.
View, path and result are all in one.
